Announcing a new Meetup for Portland Area Humanism Meetup!

What: Watch ?In the Shadow of the Temple!? at Leaving Religion, Dealing with Fallout

When: January 10,[masked]:00 AM

Where:
Friendly House
NW 26th and Thurman
Portland, OR 97210

Please join us for a special presentation at our discussion group on the second Sunday in January: "In the Shadow of the Temple," the powerful documentary film about the agonizing personal losses from leaving the Mormon religion (55 minutes.)

Leaving Religion, Dealing with Fallout: A Humanist Discussion group for new and longtime freethinkers alike with issues around: coming out, family and societal rejection, releasing old resentments, finding your place on the freethought spectrum from agnostic to atheist to humanist.



Have you left your religion and perhaps lost a support group in the process of leaving? Would you like to discuss the fallout of your decision to leave religion with other like-minded individuals?

You are invited to participate in a support/discussion group that will meet each 2nd Sunday morning of the month. The discussions will be driven by the needs of the participants.

Look for us in the Garden Room across the lobby from the main hall where the weekly program is presented. The facilitators will be Sue Nunn and Marsha Abelman.

Come early to meet our greeters, chat informally with other early arrivers over a cup of coffee and a cookie, browse the brochure table or settle the kids into the Children's Program.

You may be interested in perusing our book collection in the lending library where HGP members can select from a wide-ranging list of topics relating to secular humanism - open from 9:30 Sunday mornings only.

After the meetings, PAHM and HGP members gather for a no-host brunch at a nearby eatery. All are welcome.

We look forward to meeting you! An RSVP is not required, but it will help us to know to look for you. Directions and information about the Humanists of Greater Portland here: http://www.portlandhumanists.org/Welcome.html


"Freedom to differ is not limited to things that do not matter much. That would be a mere shadow of freedom. The test of its substance is the right to differ as to things that touch the heart of the existing order." ? Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson, West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette (1943)
