|A Sensible Social Alternative
Like the great contributors to reason throughout history, our job as
individuals is to take the very best from the debate within our global
society and apply it to our lives. We have a responsibility to not just
accept what anyone else says, but to understand ideas as best we
can. Then we can either choose to disagree, or to agree and then
apply that each day in our lives. To facilitate this, MOR provides
local chapters that are designed to provide a supportive and
rational environment for families and individuals.
|Scope of Activities
MOR local chapters generally hold weekly meetings.. The local
chapter also holds special events and volunteer efforts. In
addition, members can join special interest groups (SIG) that
focus on either studying, socializing, or actively contributing to the
community. These SIGs often set up events for the local chapter in
their area of specialty as well as offering a more personal support
and social groups for people.
|Weekly Meeting Structure
MOR weekly meeting are structured with the following activities:
1) a half hour presentation focusing on kids with adults welcome.
2) a half hour break for refreshments and socializing, including
4) a half hour presentation for adults with children welcome
5) open ended discussions. Members can divide into specific
discussion groups as they like when the main meeting ends
College student chapters of MOR substitute a Book Reading
Round Table, and a Guest Speaker Series for the
children-oriented component. Field trips are also an option.
The topics of the chapter meetings are coordinated at the national
level in order to provide consistency and common focus among
MOR members. However, the curriculum is designed to raise
questions and promote rational debate among group members.
Topics range from pertinent ethical and social issue to subjects of
personal inspiration, interpretation, and discovery.
