Welcome to Dorset Humanists

Dorset Humanists is a welcoming group for humanists, atheists and agnostics who seek to live ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity. We meet in Bournemouth for informative and enjoyable presentations, debates and discussions on a wide range of subjects including ethics, science, religion, philosophy, politics, our environment and much more. We also organise regular social events.

Short Talks: What is the Difference between a Humanist and Quaker?

Where? Green House Hotel, 4 Grove Road, Bournemouth BH1 3AX

When? Tuesday, October 16, 2018, 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM

What? Few current day Quakers are born into Quakerism. Most find a meeting and stay for a while or a lifetime. Quakerism is a movement that is evolving and changing with no formal dogma, inspired by all faiths and none. This is an opportunity to speak to two local Quakers and learn about what core principles guide their lives and work. Chris Gribble will be joined by Penny Estall to provide a short introduction and facilitate a discussion.

Following Chris and Penny's talk on Quakerism, David Warden will give a short talk on Humanism with a focus on drawing out similarities and differences from the Quaker point of view. After the two talks, we will have what promises to be a fascinating discussion about these two related but different approaches to the big questions of life.

As usual, we would like to cover the venue costs by requesting a (voluntary) contribution of about £2-£3 please on the night.
