Reflections on morality without religion

Can we be moral, ethical people in the absence of an orthodox view of religion?

“Good Without God” is the very descriptive name of a book about humanism by Greg Epstein. Audrey and Harry Bedell, winners of the auction sermon, recommended it to our minister, the Reverend Frieda Gillespie, who will deliver a sermon on the topic this Sunday, June 13.

With the arrival of the Humanist Manifesto, the 20th century brought many humanists into the Unitarian Universalist church. What does it mean to be a humanist? Can a humanist be spiritual or religious?

The service will begin at 10:30 a.m., followed by coffee and fellowship at about 11:30. Child care and religious-education classes are offered, and visitors are always welcome.
