30 July 2017 – David Venus and “Secularism and Spirituality”

David looked at whether we can have faith and a spiritual dimension to life without having belief in a deity. The service featured readings from the Book of Atheist Spirituality, and a poem by one of our members, Diana Bebby. David explored how Western spirituality has focussed upon belief in a deity, but this is not necessarily the case in other spiritual traditions, such as Buddhism. His view is that our spiritual lives can be rich and full, whether we believe in a God or not.
