This Monday the Humanist Community at Rutgers will participate in the Parliament of World Religions meeting to discuss Forgiveness. And for this particular event, our hosts specially added “and Philosophies” to the title!
Please join us to hear about other traditions’ understanding of forgiveness and its importance. HCRU, for our small part and in an attempt to represent the diversity of Humanist perspectives, will talk about the need for seeking out and giving forgiveness here and now in this world, as well as other lessons that are emerging from Positive Psychology. We also hope to emphasize the importance of these kinds of dialogs given that no one has all of the answers and we need to look for truth wherever it hides.
