(Based on the book, Reason and Reverence: Religious Humanism for the 21st Century, Skinner House Books, 2006)

Religious humanism and religious naturalism go together very well because from humanism comes the emphatic conviction of the value of every human being, a belief in the worth and dignity of human beings, and an ethic that emphasizes love and social justice and opposes oppression in all its forms.  From naturalism comes a sense of awe and wonder and reverence and mystery in the face of life and the universe that provides a deep spiritual dimension humanism by itself has lacked.
