Most Unitarian-Universalists and Humanists seem to identify as liberals or progressives. UU Fellowships also consider themselves to be open-minded and inclusive. We strive to include people of color, LGBTQ folks, and others who are marginalized. But, what about those who identify as conservative?
 
Truman Dunn, in his Interfaith work in the city, along with his work with Better Angels will lead us in an exercise in what he calls "Compassionate Conversation." We are grateful that Larry James, a regular participant at our Humanism With Heart meetings and a self-identified conservative, will help us examine how open-minded and inclusive we are.
 
Humanism with Heart is a discussion and service group that is guided by the principles of Humanism, a progressive philosophy of life that, without supernaturalism, encourages us to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that are guided by reason, inspired by compassion, and informed by experience. Humanism and Unitarian Universalism (UU) share a long history, with several UU ministers having helped write the three iterations of the Humanist Manifesto. Come and explore with others the full diversity of today’s modern Humanism, which encompasses religious, secular, and spiritual perspectives.
 
Meetings are held the first and third Thursdays of each month at 7 PM at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Winston-Salem at 4055 Robinhood Drive. This group is sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Winston-Salem, is free to attend, and is open to the public. Please contact humanism@uufws.org for more information or to be added to our Email list.
