Jonathan Springer will present a program on photography on May 24 at 7 p.m. in the Fellowship Commons. Long interested in photography, Jonathan began serious practice of it ten years ago when he joined the Southern Illinois Photographic Society. Jonathan will share the basics of his photographic technique, and review a selection of images from his travels to different parts of the world and here at home.

If you missed the Service on Sunday, May 14th, here is the text of the reflections by C. Vine and D. Young.

“Simplifying Life Through Downsizing”

The next New Humanist Forum is Sunday, May 21st at 12:15pm at the Carbondale Unitarian Fellowship, 105 N. Parrish Lane, Carbondale, IL. Dawn Crimson will present “Simplifying Life Through Downsizing.”

Once we grow weary of maintaining a large home, of managing and securing all our belongings, what does it take to make a change? How can we visualize and create a less demanding household, and where do we start?

Dawn Crimson owns Caring Transitions, whose team has helped dozens of clients downsize, move, and empty their long-time, large homes. She has witnessed the struggles and joys of making this tremendous lifestyle change.

The New Humanist Forum is a member-led group devoted to exploring together all the many facets of “what it means to be fully human.” To attend or participate one does not need to be a Fellowship member.

The community is invited to this free event.
