Platform: Living the Good Life: Making Changes that Connect Us - Bart Worden

Bart Worden, Executive Director, American Ethical Union presents:

"Living the Good Life: Making Changes that Connect Us"



“There is a great and crying evil in modern society. It is want of purpose. It is that narrowness of vision which shuts out the wider vistas of the soul. It is the absence of those sublime emotions which, wherever they arise, do not fail to exalt and consecrate existence.” Felix Adler, 1876

Adler’s hope was that Ethical Societies would inspire people to experience profound purposefulness, coupled with an expansive vision of humanity and a passion for realizing each person’s worth and dignity—and that would lead us toward a richly humane and just society. How might we realize Adler's vision in our lives today? 


After the Platform, join us for conversation and light refreshments.

    Bart delivered an interesting, well-paced presentation about dealing with our immediate emotions in ways that defuse and compartmentalize our feelings that enable us to elicit the best in ourselves and in others.
