    There's a nice introduction to it here:

    Unitarian Universalism is often mentioned in the same sentence as Humanism, though I would say the two are distinct:

    Well Violet I must admit to having nothing whatsoever to do with this until 2004. Unfortunately my brother-in-laws wife died that year and she had an humanist funeral. It was really different. There was not cross or anything religious in the service at all and to be quite honest I didn't like it. I can remember thinking at the time that Leslie must have had a rude awakening when she passed to find that it isn't the end after all.

    One of my nieces does marriages for this belief and I find it very hard to adjust to.

    In other words,Reality. Sometimes that is good but like you,I much prefer the old ways.
    An old fashioned wedding and an old fashioned funeral.

    Thanks for the link :flo:, very interesting, i've heard humanist funerals can be very good and I suppose it is a good choice for non religious people.

    Yeah, they certainly appeal to me. Remembrance and celebration but without the dogma.:asmile:
