Our year-long series kicks off with this introductory panel exploring how Humanism compares to religion as an ethical approach to meeting our greatest human need: the need for love. Panelists include Boston Globe writer Meredith Goldstein, author of the extremely popular “Love Letters” column, and novel The Singles; Tom Matlack, founder of the Good Men Project; Michael DeDora, Director of Public Policy for the Center for Inquiry; Mary Johnson, former nun under Mother Theresa and now Humanist author of An Unquenchable Thirst. Moderated by Greg Epstein, Humanist Chaplain at Harvard University and author of Good Without God: What a Billion Nonreligious People Do Believe.
Sunday, September 9, 1:30pm at the Harvard Science Center (One Oxford Street) Hall E. The Humanist Mindfulness Group will host meditation at 12 Eliot Street at 3:00pm. As part of our Fall 2012 Humanist Learning Lab pilot, free childcare will be offered at all “An Ethic of Love” events. We have also reserved a limited number of parking spots in the Littauer Lot — first come, first serve.
