Mississippi Humanist Newsletter - May 2019

Volunteering has always been important for members of the MHA. Countless members have attended our quarterly volunteer days over the years, and it’s always exciting to see so many people willing to give back to their communities.

The MHA has recently expanded its volunteer efforts. Now, instead of volunteering quarterly, we do our part at least once a week.

Making Connections – What Humanism is to Me

About five or six months ago, I made it my mission to determine what humanism means to me. I read literature (well, a little bit anyway), studied, and talked to others, but nothing quite felt right. I was trying to define something that seemed unidentifiable.

I know, that’s just what you want to hear from the MHA’s Communication Officer, right?

My belief that humanism is undefinable changed one Friday night as I stood in the middle of Smith Park with a roll in one hand and a homeless man’s hand in the other. Suddenly, the entire concept of humanism came down to a single word for me.
