What is Humanism?

Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without supernaturalism, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.

Humanist Outing:  Church of Beethoven


Five humanists took in a performance of tango music by Ben Bogart and Winnie Chung, as well as a poetry reading.  The Church of Beethoven is "...a 'church' with no preaching, just uplifting music, poetry and two minutes of silence in an all-too-busy world." The goal of the Church of Beethoven is to build a "family friendly" sense of community around the arts, featuring intimate Sunday morning performances by professional poets and musicians.”
