Humanist Discussion Group (6:30 Social, 7:00 Meeting)
Our May Humanist meeting will be held on May 8 in our new meeting place, the UUCS fellowship hall. As usual we come to socialize at 6:30 p.m. and begin the meeting at 7:00 p.m. Our topic for May will be “The Right Rites for Humanists.” In our May meeting we will discuss last rites for Humanists; not necessarily as an academic topic but as a list of ideas and possibilities which will enable each of our members to write down a list of readings, poetry, music, and thoughts about life that they want included in their memorial service. This idea was conceived by Wendy C. with the idea that we would work on this collection over time and make a booklet out of the results and publish them as one would a cookbook. Humanists have special needs when it comes to last rites. We will have some readings and present a handout of references and lists to start this project. Do some homework and think about what you would prefer personally. Either share your ideas with us or keep your thoughts private. Either way, we should have an interesting discussion. See you Wednesday.
Taoism and the I Ching (7:05)
Les Buhite is offering a class about Taoism and the I Ching on the third Wednesdays-This will be the last one. Of the many Eastern disciplines, perhaps Taoism most resonates with Unitarian Universalism as a practical system that encourages self-awareness, ethical living, and engagement in community. This four-session workshop will explore the basic principles and practices of Taoism through casting and interpreting the I Ching (The Book of Changes).
