How We Live Out Our Humanism

We are looking for stories of how your life is impacted by your humanist values - something that you “do” that expresses your humanist identity. Examples might include personal commitments, relationship building, or communal endeavors.

Tell us about your Humanist group’s community service, or an unusual family tradition; an occasional gathering of friends to pursue a common passion, or a solitary quest that reflects the best of humanism as you understand it. Read more about Religious Humanism Journal: Call for Submissions »

Unitarian Universalist Humanists And The Interdependent Web of All Existence

[Editor's note: this post was originally published on Adam Gonnerman's Tumblr.]


“We all have a thirst for wonder. It’s a deeply human quality. Science and religion are both bound up with it. What I’m saying is, you don’t have to make stories up, you don’t have to exaggerate. There’s wonder and awe enough in the real world. Nature’s a lot better at inventing wonders than we are.” - Carl Sagan  Read more about Unitarian Universalist Humanists And The Interdependent Web of All Existence »

Freethinker Friendly Program Updates

We are very pleased with the interest in and engagement with the new Freethinker Friendly program. The purpose of the program is to increase the inclusiveness of UU congregations so that all theological perspectives, including non-theistic ones, are seen as valued and respected. In response to the feedback we've been getting, we've modified the first requirement about Welcome Statements somewhat and we've added two pages with more detail: Read more about Freethinker Friendly Program Updates »

UUA President Morales on Science and the Search for Meaning

Unitarian Universalist Humanists will be very encouraged by reading UUA President Peter Morales' recent article "Science and the Search for Meaning," published in last summer's issue of The New Atlantis.  Peter forcefully reaffirms the Unitarian Universalist principle: "we affirm and promote a free and responsible search for truth and meaning." The entire essay could be interpreted as a thoughtful explication of our Unitarian Universalist Humanist Association (HUUmanists) core values of Reason, Compassion, and Community. Thanks, Peter.  We needed that!

Here are Peter Morales' words:


Ribbons on the Road

A collection of two dozen fabric arts panels made by humanist and UU artists around the country, began its fall tour during the last weekend of September, with a showing at a Michigan community event and a UU Fellowship Sunday service.  "Ribbons Not Walls" (a project of HUUmanists) invites people to create yard long representations of immigration related events and themes.  The collection includes a starkly poetic rendering of a portion of the "wall" between the US and Mexico by 13 year old Illinois UU Alayna Vesto, two panels featuring the primitive quilting style of Linda Lee, lead artist of the well known Farmworkers Memorial quilt out of Florida, and the HUUmanists "Librotraficante" (Book SmUUggler) Iogo, stitched and be-ribboned by Michigan secular humanist Sherron Collins.   Read more about Ribbons on the Road »
