News from Buxton group – Apr 10

The April meeting of the group took place at the Old Hall Hotel on 19th April and took the form of a discussion of issues raised by “The Book of Atheist Spirituality” by Andre Comte-Sponville.  Almost everyone there was dismissive of the concept of spirituality whether they had read the book or not.    Chris and Pauline Neilson from Greater Manchester Humanists were welcomed to the meeting as they are considering starting up a local group in Stockport.  The next meeting is on 17th May at the Old Hall and the speaker will be Deb Hill, headteacher at Buxton Community School, who will be speaking as herself rather than on behalf of the school, about developing moral values in a secular setting.  We will then have a 3 month break before the next meeting on 20th September.
