Episode 32 – Humans, Celebrating

For those who live without religion significant and profound human moments can be difficult to really  commemorate.  It seems that important moments, be they:

  • Marriages
  • Funerals and memorials
  • Christenings
  • Retirements

or any other powerful life change requires special acknowledgement.  For instance, when one decides to change one’s gender ‘coming out’ as that new person when the process is done can be extremely helpful for the person and the community.  Similarly, holding a memorial after a loved one dies helps the community remember that person and properly begin to grieve so as to move on.

Tim and Jennifer are registered Life Cycle Celebrants who perform non-religious ceremonies.  Sometimes these are mixed religion ceremonies where the participants desire a non-religious ceremony (so no one feels excluded).  Other times ceremonies performed are for the secular and Humanist society (which is their specialty).

If you happen to be getting married and you’re already using theknot.com be certain to see how Jennifer and Tim are registered on that site.  Many interesting photos from previous ceremonies

Episode 22 – Happy TurkeyGiving Day

Thanksgiving at the Hub!
What a remarkable holiday.  The need to belong and be together is universal among all humans and special days on the calendar help remind us of that.   Thanksgiving at the Hub is a real treat.  The food gets cooked early and the guests are always on time.
Ruth and Jesse have been hosting Thanksgiving dinner at the Hub for the last few years.  The tables all get pushed together banquet style, so imagine the dining hall at Hogwarts excepts it’s full of freethinkers instead of wizards.
There’s much feasting, talking, and laughing and everyone is invited to participate in and experience the rich moment we create together.
