New YHC discussion group: WTF?

In addition to our Practical Humanism Discussion Group, which meets several times a month—as well as our regular undergraduate, Divinity School, and graduate student meetings—YHC is pleased to announce a new monthly discussion group, which is free and open to the public:

Tom-KrattenmakerCan a nonreligious person follow Jesus? Muhammad? Buddha? What about Gandhi… or Darwin? In the pantheon of great thinkers, prophets, writers, scientists, artists, and leaders, to whom do you turn for inspiration, motivation, meaning, and ethical guidance? How do you implement their lessons in your life? Do you follow their examples?

The Yale Humanist Community invites you to join WTF (Who to Follow?), a discussion group exploring these matters the fourth Tuesday of every month (beginning March 24), at 7 PM at The Grove (760 Chapel Street). These discussions will be hosted by Tom Krattenmaker, a secular progressive, religion-in-public-life columnist for USA Today, and Communications Director at Yale Divinity School. Tom is currently writing a book exploring what it could mean to be a “secular Jesus follower.”
