We stand at the cusp of a new way of thinking about and understanding our world; one which
is not bound to the traditions of prosaic beliefs and archaic institutions. American Humanism
is a consistent advocate for a naturalistic approach to the problems of human life.
To find ourselves in the natural universe and more intimately, in the lives of others of our kind,
is to recognize the true source of our individual humanity. From this source flows our ability
and responsibility to lead meaningful lives, capable of adding to the greater good and intrinsic
beauty of the humanity we share with all.
On a practical level, we aspire to fulfill the human desire to know. We challenge the stifling
limitations of religiously restricted thinking. At almost every meeting, we examine issues of
ethics, science, philosophy, politics, history, art, or some other aspect of human knowledge
and life that helps us become the articulate, informed advocates for the greater good of
humanity, we desire to be. It is not just for Humanists to learn such things, but for all fully
engaged citizens who want a better world for themselves and all the future citizens who
will inherit our world. And, having acquired this understanding, it becomes our ethical
responsibility to actively create human well being. Being "good" is not a passive condition.
This is your invitation to a better form of life than we have had before. • J.P. ©

2012 will be remembered as the year we lost an esteemed leader, Rob Byrch. He was truly an exemplar of what it means to be a
true servant and benefactor of the human race. He was president of the Tampa Humanist Association, and a member of the
leadership council of our local Coalition of Reason. He was 68.
