Readings For Life Events

Bride - 379-317 iStock_000019452528XSmallWhen people gather together to mark major life events, many with naturalist views look for readings that fit their beliefs.

Humanist, UU, religious naturalist, and non-denominational chaplains and celebrants have assembled poems and readings that reflect naturalist perspectives – for use at weddings, funerals, the birth of a child, coming of age celebrations and other occasions. A sampling of these resources (poems, essays, and other thoughts) is provided via links at this page.
