Sunday Platform Meetings at the Society for Ethical Culture

We meet on Sundays for two reasons: to find inspiration for living a more ethical life, and to connect with others who share a similar journey. We share inspiring and stimulating ideas about social issues, ethical living and personal transformation.

Some Sundays, we hear from the professional Ethical Leader of the community, and on other Sundays, we hear from guest speakers or members of our own or other Ethical Societies. Subjects vary widely. Some platform topics focus on practical living and ethical relationships.  Some focus on humanism, secular philosophy or religion. Some focus on public issues including global warming, foreign wars, national politics, health issues and human rights concerns. For some Sunday meetings use what we call a colloquy format, which is more participative and informal.

Sunday meetings include time to honor personal journeys, challenges and joys, and to be a supportive community to each other. We also include live music, most often with song or two where everyone is invited, as they are willing and able, to join in. Finally, we share some coffee, tea or juice, and light snacks, with conversation during a social hour, as a way to more informally continue the discussion as well as reconnect or meet new friends.

We hope to go out, back to our individual lives, families, work and social action, re-energized and re-committed to live more ethically in all those arenas.
