Description:
Join celebrated author, professor, and Episcopal priest Lauren Winner as she shares with us some of the overlooked images for God in the Bible — images that will surprise, delight, challenging, and ultimately draw us nearer to God. Lauren will be preaching at the 8:00 am and 10:45 am services, as well as speaking at our Adult Forum at 9:30 am. When you think of God, do you envision someone so powerful and holy as to be far removed from our everyday life? What if, though, God isn’t far removed? What if our typical images of God, while good, offer us only a glimpse of God and limit the scope of our relationship? What if God was so intimate and close-up to you that it would be akin to going out every day and wearing God?

Description:
“The Biological Origins of Spiritual Longing” will be presented by John Wathey, on Wednesday, October 30, 2019 at a special meeting sponsored by the Ethical Humanist Society of Asheville, 7:30-8:30 PM, at the North Asheville Library, 1030 Merrimon Ave., Asheville, NC All are welcome to attend. Join author, retired biologist and humanist, John Wathey for a journey into the evolutionary origins of religion. That exploration has taught him that people believe in God not because they lie awake at night worrying about what preceded the Big Bang, but because the sense of God’s presence is a compelling experience for many people. This phenomenon is a puzzle of human nature that cries out for scientific explanation. In The Illusion of God’s Presence, his 2016 book on the biological origins of spiritual longing, Wathey attempts that explanation by exploring evolutionary and behavioral questions. It is the product of seven years of scholarly research and a lifetime of personal struggle. Why are we prone to the intuitive sense that something about our universe is benevolent and loving? Why do we long for that mystical other? What is it about our evolutionary history and the niche we occupy that have shaped human nature in this way? The talk and discussion will challenge the assumption that religious feelings are uniquely human by uncovering roots that go deeply into behaviors we share with many other animals. John C. Wathey is an author and biologist whose research interests include evolution and the biology of nervous systems. He has a PhD in Neurosciences from UC San Diego and undergraduate degrees from Caltech. After post-doctoral work at the Salk Institute, he spent most of his career in the private sector working on computer simulations of protein folding. He came of age in North Carolina’s Piedmont, where the ubiquity of religion clashed with his scientific interests and ultimately spawned his first book, The Illusion of God’s Presence. Recently he has explored the algorithmic aspects of political polarization and the need for electoral reform. His essays on these and other subjects can be found at his website, watheyresearch.com. Informal discussion will follow the presentation. The Ethical Humanist Society of Asheville endeavors to nurture the capacity and responsibility of human beings to act in their personal relationships and in the larger community to help create a better world. We are inspired by the ideal of working to create a more humane society, recognizing each person’s worth and dignity, and helping to bring out the best in him or her. We are a member of the American Ethical Union and an affiliate of the American Humanist Association. We join together to assist each other in developing ethical ideas and ideals, to celebrate life’s joys, support each other through life’s crises, and to cultivate ethical behavior in our community.

Description:
Join Asheville members of American Friends of Combatants for Peace for presentations by former Israeli and Palestinian combatants who have joined together to work for peace in their shared homeland. Events will include personal stories from the frontlines of one of the world’s most intractable conflicts as well as time for Q&A. In 2006, Israeli and Palestinian former combatants, people who had taken an active role in the conflict, laid down their weapons and established Combatants for Peace. The egalitarian, bi-national, grassroots organization was founded on the belief that the cycle of violence can only be broken when Israelis and Palestinians join forces. Committed to joint nonviolence since its inception, CFP works to both transform and resolve the conflict by ending the Israeli occupation and all forms of violence between the two sides and building a peaceful future for both peoples.
