This week we’d like you to try out a different format with us.
We’ll be viewing a short (15 min.) video by Doug Thomas on the basics of Humanism. After that, we’ll have a longer discussion, curated by a few Wichita Oasis board members. We won’t be answering questions directly, but we do hope to hear about your experiences with humanism, what you think humanism means, or how humanism has guided your ethical decisions.
This week will be our potluck as well. If you’d like to sign up to bring something, message us or let us know on the Facebook event.
