Adult RE - "What You Can Believe if You Don't Believe in God?"

Session 1
Monday, December 5, 7-9pm
Session 2
Sunday, December 9, 3-5pm
In December we will read and discuss an address entitled “Why Teach Religion in an Age of Science?” by Sophia Lyon Fahs, the famous scholar and educator who revolutionized RE and contributed to the “Unitarian Renaissance” of the 1940s. 
"The world we now know is one. The universe is one. Mankind is one brotherhood. We even belong in the family of atoms and stars. Reality can no longer be divided into clear-cut contraries, the material and spiritual, the animate and the inanimate, the temporal and eternal, the body and mind, good and evil, today and tomorrow, Jew and Gentile, Christian and Pagan, the secular and religious, even the Creator and the created. The dividing walls are down... Let us then walk forward rather than backward. The unique historical memories in our special religious cultures call today for less loyalty and more understanding, less praise and more honest self-criticism. Our direction needs to be forward. It is not our ancestors who will be changed by what we do. It is our contemporaries, and our descendants for generations to come, for whom we should be feeling responsibilities. 'For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.'”
