Losing Our Religion, Raising Humanist Children

How do Humanists and the nonreligious introduce their children to ethical education and religious literacy?

Join us as we partner with the Greater Boston Humanists to host Katherine Ozment, a Boston-based freelance writer,  who will speak about raising Humanist children in a religious world. Katherine has worked in senior editorial positions at National Geographic and Boston magazines and has written extensively on family, work and pop culture.

Katherine will recount the story of her journey to Humanism and lead us in a discussion about how to approach ethical, interfaith education for both adults and children.

Listen to Katherine’s WBUR interview on “Religion, Children, an the Rise of the Nones,” also featuring Assistant Chaplain Chris Stedman.

Sunday, January 27, at Phillips Brooks House. A free buffet lunch will be provided (12 pm), followed by the lecture at 1 pm. 

FREE PARKING in the Littauer Library Lot near the Science Center will be available during the event: Enter the Science Quadrangle from Oxford St. and follow the road through to its end in the Science Center/Law Library area. Phillips Brooks House is in the very corner of Harvard Yard (which is also accessible by the MBTA).
