“Human decency is not derived from religion. It precedes it.” ― Christopher Hitchens
This month I’m looking for help from the group to create a new section for the Swindon Humanists website – a recommended reading list! Rather than a just list of all the obvious books (The God Delusion etc), I’d like to expand it and include all our favourite books, not necessarily related to humanism. So please come along thinking about what your favourite book might be and we can discuss our picks over a pint. I’ve already been posing the question to lots of well known humanists and atheists on Twitter (and actually had some replies!) so the list is already growing. I’ll be bringing along a few books the group has to auction off to you (Flog It style!) – but don’t worry, I doubt the bidding will go much beyond 50p 😉
Also we’re now ready to start offering official annual membership of Swindon Humanists. This will cost £5 for the year and we’re putting together a welcome pack for new members, but more importantly you’ll be helping us greatly to arrange future events to help promote humanism in the area in many different ways.
Looking forward to seeing you on the 27th 🙂
