As humanists, we believe in living life to the fullest! We want to leave this planet better than we found it because we each have only one turn on the big blue ball called Earth.
But what does that look like? How do we spend our days as humanists? How do we contribute to our communities in ways that made a difference?
Last night, close to 1,500 Mississippians didn’t have a place to call home. Some stayed in shelters while others struggled to find a spot to rest in a park or on the streets. Still others likely stayed up all night, afraid to close their eyes underneath the dark sky.
Many are adults on their own, attempting to figure out how to survive. Others are families working to stay together during terrible circumstances. Then, there are unaccompanied children, trying to navigate a harsh reality as they move closer to adulthood.
Since I am not running for re-election to the MHA Board of Directors this year, my service on the MHA board comes to a close on February 16.
I am privileged to have been able to serve the MHA membership for the last four years, and I believe we have put together a strong foundation for continued success as we grow our membership and do good without any god here in Mississippi. We continue to show Mississippi that we believe in good!
The MHA Annual Membership Meeting will be on Feb. 16 in Jackson, MS, and it’s going to be an exciting one. We have five people running for three positions, so your vote matters.
As we get closer to the election, we will send you more information about the candidates and give you the chance to vote via email. You can also vote in person at our membership meeting.
More than half of the residents in 11 Southern states believe the United States was founded as an explicitly Christian nation, according to the Winthrop Poll Southern Focus Survey. This doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone who lives in the Bible Belt. You probably don’t have to think back too far to remember the last time someone made that claim.
While humanists aren’t surprised by the results of the poll, religious southerners might be shocked by the truth.
Many of the founding fathers were so skeptical about religion they would have a hard time getting elected today.
