HOH MAIN CITY-WIDE GATHERING

Our monthly Gathering is the cornerstone of all HOH activities and takes place at the Bayland Community Center [Map], on the third Saturday of each month. We generally start with a reception and follow with a presentation and then questions and/or discussion. The presentations range from a wide variety of interesting topics. As with all of our meetings and events, the HOH Monthly Meeting is open to anyone to attend!

HOH REGIONAL FORUMS
These forums take place simultaneously around Houston and surrounding areas on the first Saturday of each month. The specific times and locations of these forums can be found on our calendar page.

HOH Young Adults Club
The HOH YAC has a variety of events and social activities which happen throughout the month on different days as members plan things and announce to the others. To keep up on this, please join the HOH Young Adults Club Yahoo List. In addition to these irregular social events, the YAC now has a regular meeting focused more on organizing, activism, and issues...

HOH Ideas Club
Here we gather to discuss the ideas in a different book each month. Unlike a typical book club, the presenter for that month will give an overview of the book and its ideas before discussion. So, while reading the book is helpful, it is not required to participate in a discussion of the ideas in the book. In addition, ideas might sometimes come from several tangent books or from other sources. The topics vary widely and are always engaging.

Religion, Ethics & Society Club
This club looks at issues relating to religion. This includes discussion about problems with religion and its institutions and leaders. It also includes discussion of what elements of religion may be important to human culture. The question, "what is religion?" is explored, as well the history and future of religion. Relevant subject matter might also include critiques on faith-based thinking, superstition, religious violence, and dogma.

HOH Brunch
At the HOH Brunch, we usually pick a topical question and then go around the table, as with a forum, each person getting a chance to give their thoughts, followed by a general discussion. The subjects are always interesting and everyone's invited!

ANNUAL EVENTS

In addition to our regular events HOH participates in, and often co-hosts, some annual events. These include the following:


Darwin Day

Darwin Day is based on the birthday of Charles Darwin, and is designed to celebrate the discovery of evolution and promote knowledge and appreciation of what evolution has to tell us about the fascinating natural universe we live in. Darwin's birthday is February 12th and our event usually takes place sometime around that date.

World Humanist Day

This is a Humanist holiday celebrated on June 21st. According to the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU), the day is a way of spreading awareness of Humanism as a philosophical life stance and means to effect change in the world. It is also seen as a time for Humanists to gather socially and promote the positive values of Humanism.

Winter Solstice Celebration

The Winter Solstice Celebration is held each year in December, preferably near that year's solstice date. Humanists and others use this time of year to fellowship in the important spirit of giving and compassion. We attach the celebration to a natural event both to coincide with the other holidays of this month and as a reminder of our appreciation of the natural universe. Please check back here or contact us for details of this year's celebration as plans develop.

- Humanist Themes in Star Trek
- Halloween Costume Party
