Joint Social with Cornwall Humanists

Our second joint meeting of 2017 with Cornwall Humanists on 5th November was another success.  We were joined by a member of Exeter Humanists too, and had an enjoyable couple of hours discussing subjects of mutual interests, as well as some general socialising.

Talk to Plymouth Unitarians  

We rarely get asked to speak about Humanism, so we were pleased to receive an invitation from Plymouth’s Unitarian Church for a short talk as part of their November lunchtime reflective meeting.  Unitarianism is a very tolerant and open-minded approach to faith, and It was interesting to explore what humanists and Unitarians have in common, as well as our differences.

Percy Bysshe Shelley: A Humanist Out of Time

We were delighted in October to be able to provide a speaker for the 2017 Plymouth Literary Festival. John Webster, a committee member of Oxford Humanists, gave a talk entitled “Percy Bysshe Shelley: A Humanist Out of Time”.  

Child Online Safety or a Safeguarding Dystopia?

The risks posed by children’s use of social media has become a staple diet for some parts of the press.  But Is this a genuine concern, or just a moral panic? Professor Andy Phippen joined us in October to provide some perspective on the topic.

The Big Change in Religion and Belief

Jeremy Rodell, chair of SE London Humanists, came to speak to us for our first talk of the autumn.
