Our Commitment to Relationship

Historically and today, a central commitment in Ethical Societies is to relationship. How does this differentiate us from some other groups and philosophies of life? Where did the concept come from? How does relationship motivate our actions, as individuals and as part of the Ethical movement?

RYSEC Clergy Leader Jone Johnson Lewis is our featured speaker. We’ll have time for participation. RYSEC is hosting this platform meeting to be shared with several other Ethical Societies, whose members will also be present.

Rather than RYSEC’s usual gathering time from 11-11:15, we’ll start promptly with the program at 11 am.

Check back nearer the date of this meeting. We are considering making this a “hybrid” program where you can participate via Zoom or, with registration, in person. Our decision to include an in-person option will depend on health authority advice at that time, and RYSEC’s capacity to host such a program. (If you are able to volunteer to help with the tech aspects, contact Jone Johnson Lewis well in advance so we can plan accordingly.)

Contributions to “Sunday Sharing” during August 2021 are shared between RYSEC and this month’s sharing partner.
