17 January meeting: Hot Potatoes (open mike session). Come along and speak your mind!

Once again, we are opening the floor at our January meeting to all of our members. Anyone can speak for 5 minutes (absolute maximum 10 minutes) on a topic of their own choice that is in some way related to humanism. It can be a personal account or an objective review. The idea is that you talk about something that interests you, and you interest us!  You can use PowerPoint if you wish, but that is not essential. Please email the chairman with the title of your planned talk to prevent duplication.

Thursday 17  January at 7.30 pm, University Centre Shrewsbury, Guildhall, Frankwell Quay, Shrewsbury SY3 8HQ. All welcome. A voluntary contribution is requested for room hire and refreshments.

You are very welcome to come for tea and coffee from 7 pm to meet and chat with other members and guests.

15 January: Where do we get our morals? A discussion between a Christian and a Humanist

A dscussion between Peter Bellingham, Pastor at the Well in Shrewsbury, and Simon Nightingale, Chair of Shropshire Humanists.

Tuesday 15 January at 7.30 pm, University Centre Shrewsbury, Guildhall, Frankwell Quay, Shrewsbury SY3 8HQ. All welcome. Entrance is free and no ticket is required.

Peter Bellingham, Pastor at the Well in Shrewsbury, and Simon Nightingale, Chair of Shropshire Humanists, are next door neighbours and good friends. Their beliefs are different for Peter is a Christian and Simon a Humanist. However their moral values are very similar.

On the 15th of January they are meeting to discuss how they reach these moral values. It is not an adversarial debate, but a discussion to help Christians understand the basis of humanist morality and vice versa.

The audience will have an opportunity for questions and comments.

The meeting will be chaired by the Reverend John Nightingale, a Christian and also Simon’s brother.
