Lunch with Hugh – The Magic of Humanism!
“Lunch with Hugh” will begin featuring a new brochure entitled, “The Magic of Humanism.” Written by James Croft, Leader of the Ethical Society of St. Louis, it explores six values central to humanism: truth, nature, community, growth, goodness, and justice. After a brief go-round, we’ll share our thoughts on the first of these accessible 300-word entries entitled “Truth.” They’ll be plenty of time for casual socializing too! You can access this brochure here, or you can email email@example.com for a copy.
