HAT Forum
Sat Sep 3rd 2016
11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
519 Church Street Room tba or 304
Topic: Ritual
Proposer: Moses Klein

What value do rituals serve?

What rituals do you find useful in your life?

Rituals are often associated with religion. Do religious rituals have a
different character from rituals that may make sense in a secular context?

Does HAT need rituals? What sort of rituals would fit our group?

A few of the words listed in a thesaurus as synonyms for ritual: ceremony
custom, habit, routine, convention, sacrament, tradition. How do you
understand ritual differently than those words?
