Sunday May 14th 7.15pm for 7:30pm
Daniel Hall, Long Garden Walk, Farnham, GU9 7HX.
Humanists UK’s first Head of Non-Religious Pastoral Support David Savage (aided by Jennie Johnson) will be leading two small group discussion sessions with a refreshment interval in-between.
The first small groups session will encourage people to reflect on their answers to “How did you come to your beliefs and values you hold today?” and “What impact has your journey and your beliefs had on your life?” .
Following the interval, the second session will explore questions such as “Why should we be good?”, “What is good?”, “What helps you cope with difficult times?”, “What gives your life meaning and purpose?” and “How might your answers differ from those given by people who have different beliefs?”
At the end David will summarise and provide feedback.
Some people have beliefs akin to humanism without realising. Is this true of you?
As well as providing you with an opportunity to explore your own beliefs and journey to them, the evening will give participants the chance to learn about others’ experiences including how different humanists describe their beliefs and what Humanism means to them.
