What Does Humanism Mean Today? by Rev. Dr. Barry Andrews

Sunday Services are held at 9:15 and 11:00 am. Humanism was born in Spokane under the ministry of John Dietrich who served this congregation from 1911 to 1915. I discovered humanism as a teenager here during the 1960s when Rudy Gilbert was the minister. While many UUs consider themselves humanists, it is less often spoken about today and there is some confusion as to what it means. I am pleased to say that this sermon won the Humanist Sermon of the Year Award this year, and I look forward to sharing it with you.

Sunday Services are held at 9:15 and 11:00am. Matthew Fox is a former Roman Catholic Priest of the Dominican Order who was silenced and excommunicated in 1993 for teaching and writing about what’s he’s coined, Original Blessing—the idea there is something inherently good about nature, the Earth, and humanity—which runs counter to the doctrine of Original Sin.
