VSHJ Meeting Program for October
Date: Sunday, October 20
Time: 2:00 pm
Place: Jewish Community Centre, 3636 Shelbourne St.
Topic: Atheism 2.0 – A 20 minute TED talk shown on the large screen. What aspects of religion should atheists (respectfully) adopt? Alain de Botton suggests a “religion for atheists” — call it Atheism 2.0 — that incorporates religious forms and traditions to satisfy our human need for connection, ritual and transcendence.
Through his witty and literate books — and his new School of Life — Alain de Botton helps others find fulfillment in the everyday.
Discussion and refreshments to follow.
