The Comox Valley Humanists group was formed in November 2012. Sixteen months on seems a good time to assess our progress and set directions. The group’s originating vision of building a community for like-minded individuals, with a focus on education, support for community projects, and the exploration of humanism, has been achieved in part. We’ve had some great meetings discussing a wide variety of subjects with engaged membership. Our meeting format has been refined, and will expand to include a look at what other humanist groups around the world are up to. The executive is moving to put us on social media and we’re holding our first public speaker event soon. Humanism is a complex subject, and as a worldview touches all aspects of our lives. We look forward to a greater reach into our communities, good discussion, and sharing in a worthwhile community.
