“Five Hundred Million What?”  In the story of The Little Prince, the prince encounters a businessman who is counting objects: those glittering objects in the sky, counting them in order to own them and get rich selling them.

How often in our lives do we use our curiosity to see beyond the usefulness of objects, of people, of ideas, worried that we’ll lose track of our counting if we stop to enjoy, to question, to be in relationship?

Our Leader, Jone Johnson Lewis, will reflect on how we might grow our appreciation of others, ourselves, and the world we live in, by seeing beyond just mere usefulness.

Our Ethics Matters theme for May is curiosity: the practice of moving from fear to open-mindedness and open-heartedness.

11 a.m. is gathering time, to meet and greet one another.  We start the formal program at 11:15 and usually end about 12:30.  After that, we have a time of informal conversation with some beverages and snacks.  Please feel free to bring some snacks to share!  

Ethics for Children meets concurrently with our Sunday programs. Please join us!
