Coffee and Current Events
May you live in interesting times” is purportedly a traditional Chinese curse. Well folks, we are indeed living in “interesting times.” Because of the imperative to keep safe, we are currently doing a virtual Coffee and Current Events meetup from the comfort of our own homes.
So pour yourself a cup of coffee, toast your bagel, and follow the link provided to our monthly salon where we will try to make sense of the political, economic, and social fallout from the coronavirus — as well as other issues top of mind.
As humanists we are interested in seeing the world around us evolve to conform with our humanist principles. For example, seeing the U.S. Congress actually do something about climate change, the proliferation of guns, etc. Unfortunately, however, the Congress is controlled by people who don’t believe in science and misinterpret the Constitution. What is a humanist to do?
Of course, taking action to make the world a better place is always appropriate. But sometimes we just need to unwind at the end of the week and be in the company of others who share the same concerns. There will be no facilitator and there is no need for preparation. Come as you are.
This event is sponsored by HumanistsMN. If you are not already a member, please consider joining to help us cover our costs and build the humanist movement. Sign up at humanistsmn.org.
