Unitarian Universalists asks ‘Humanism: Does It Fit Spirituality?’
TWIN FALLS — Humanism is the belief that human beings are the source of meaning and values. It is a scientific search, self-correcting and open to change with new knowledge and new insights. Some religious evangelists deride humanism as a faith leading nowhere.
Humanists see humanity as having the capacity for continued growth and development, and they accept responsibility for encouraging that growth. But there are different types of humanism: literary, renaissance, western cultural, philosophical, Christian, modern, secular and religious.
Learn and discuss this philosophy of life at the Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 10:30 a.m. Sunday. The congregation meets at the Vendor Blender and Event Center, 588 Addison Ave. W., near County West.
Newcomers of all religious paths, or none at all, are always welcome. Child care is available. The center is handicapped-accessible. Parking is in the rear of the building.
