Humanist Outing:  Church of Beethoven
Sunday, January 20th, 10:00 a.m.

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.”  January’s performance is tango music (!) by Ben Bogart and Winnie Chung.  $10 at the door.  Free parking across the street.  Performance starts at 10:30 a.m., but plan to arrive at 10:00 a.m. for coffee and cookies.

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.

"Being a Humanist means trying to behave decently without expectation

of rewards or punishment after you are dead."
