What do we imagine the future will be like?  Prepare to go big picture. We’ll explain where we seem to be going as a species as we approach the third decade of the third millennium. Is this where you expected we’d be when you were a child? What do you expect for our future now? And what role can Ethical Societies play?

quote meme with James Croft on humanism and hopeWe are thrilled to have guest speaker James Frey Croft with us for this Sunday.  James is an Ethical Culture Leader, working with Kate Lovelady* at the St. Louis Ethical Society as Outreach Director. He is a spokesperson for humanism and Ethical Culture, well known for his social media presence as well as his thoughtful workshops and talks on communication, philosophy, humanism, and social justice. James will speak at the morning platform, and then lead a workshop in the afternoon on The Ethics of Star Trek.  More on this later — watch this space!

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

Music by Lindsey Wilson.

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!  

September's monthly theme is expectation. Words against skyline, farmland with rising sun.

Our Ethics Matters theme for September is Expectation: what we think about the future can shape what we do in our lives, our relationships, the world. 

* Longer term members will remember that Kate Lovelady was, for a year, an intern Leader at the Riverdale-Yonkers Society for Ethical Culture.
