Michael Werner gave an excellent talk at the Concord Area Humanists meeting on October 23, 2013 about Humanist Ethics. Mike and his wife Susanne were in the area as part of Mike's book tour to promote his new book "Regaining Balance: The Evolution of the UUA". Here is the video of Mike's talk.

The UU Humanists' Blog is a curated blog -- this means we highly encourage members and those with an interest in Humanism within the Unitarian Universalist tradition to submit articles for publication. The blog is curated so we may negotiate edits for clarity or length and we reserve the right to not publish every submitted article.
This means that the blog's content reflects the diversity of the opinions of the authors and is not just the "official party line" of the Association. As Humanists, we welcome diversity of opinion and encourage civil discourse through comments on these posts and on our social media pages.
Michael Werner is going to be touring the New England area in October, speaking about his new book "Regaining Balance: The Evolution of the UUA". If you are in the area you can see Mike speak at the following events:
HUUmanists president John Hooper and Mike Werner, author of "Regaining Balance: The Evolution of the UUA", were guests on "The VUU", the weekly video talk show by the Church of the Larger Fellowship about all things Unitarian Universalist. They talked brilliantly about Humanism in the UUA and about Mike's book. Enjoy!
