Our Monday evening study group, HAIR (Heretics, Agnostics, Infidels and Other Riffraff), meets weekly from 7:00 – 8:30 pm, on Zoom.  HAIR intends to be a place of inquiry and questioning, where doubts and questions are expressed, uncertainties about our faith and its relevance to our daily lives are raised, and the application of the teachings and principles of our Christian faith to major issues of our time are explored, and where we have interesting and stimulating discussions.

  Recently we have mainly used videos of TED talks to launch discussion, and dealt with such topics as environmentalism, racism, social justice, ethics, science and religion, and healthy ageing. In the past we have also watched and discussed DVD series, and read and discussed thought-provoking books and articles, and we keep looking for stimulating new material.  

These discussions are open to anyone interested, and new members are always welcome.  For further information, or to get the zoom link for our next meeting, please contact David Leyton-Brown at dlbrown@yorku.ca 

On Monday March 25 at 7:00 HAIR will discuss the TED talk by Alain de Botton entitled “Atheism 2.0”.  It can be found at https://www.ted.com/talks/alain_de_botton_atheism_2_0/transcript?language=en
