Parenting Beyond Belief
I attended Dale McGowan’s seminar this past weekend. I’m not at all a seminar type of person, but I really did enjoy myself. He’s funny, and smart and makes quite a bit of sense. If you’re not familiar with him, here is his blog. He has one book out and another due in February.
He raises some interesting questions, and has made me rethink my approach on religion and my girls. It can be hard raising kids in this world as a minority in your (lack of) faith. I won’t go into all the details and bore my Christian readers, but his point is basically educate. Educate them on all religions, reinforce their desire to be good people, lead by example. Good stuff.
One thing he suggested just for fun was this quiz.
My top 5:
|1.||Secular Humanism (100%)|
|2.||Unitarian Universalism (92%)|
|3.||Liberal Quakers (78%)|
|5.||Theravada Buddhism (69%)|
Good stuff. He’s worth a read, even if you’re not a fire breathing heathen like myself.
