Food for thought: “Man can no longer live for himself alone. We must realize that all life is valuable and that we are united to all life. From this knowledge comes our spiritual relationship with the universe.”

― Albert Schweitzer

Monthly meeting – we are meeting at the Huntsville Public Library on Monroe Street in Huntsville, in room C (on the second floor, on the far wall from the elevator). The AHA’s 77th Annual Conference is taking place this week —  May 17 through May 20. Details are at americanhumanist.org/events/ahas-77th-annual-conference.   Also on the national Web site is “Humanist Common Ground,” a new series of eleven pamphlets showing that common ground with humanism is possible with some members of other religions, from Muslim to Unitarian Universalism. Louise and Travis will bring all eleven to hand out to attendees at the June meeting. Also see online versions at americanhumanist.org/paths/ .  If you want we can begin to talk about “Common ground” in May from the online versions. Or you may prefer another topic. What do you think is important to discuss?

“Do stuff. be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. stay eager.”  ― Susan Sontag
