“Source Five: Humanist Teachings,” Rev. Tony Larsen

In this fifth Tony’s series on our 6 UU sources, Tony will explore

“Humanist teachings

which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason

and the results of science,

and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit.”

Interestingly, you don’t always see “humanism” capitalized; nor do you usually find “idolatry” in the plural (my own computer red-lines it as incorrect). Even more surprising, perhaps, is seeing religious language (“idolatry”) paired with a secular notion (“humanism”).  Tony thinks it all makes sense, though, and he will tell us why this Sunday.
