After her 10:30 program, re-join us for a workshop with Susan where you can more fully explore making ethical choices in your life around consumption and conservation. Everyone is welcome; no one will be judged but rather applauded for thinking about making changes and/or sharing information about how to live more ecologically. Childcare provided.
Susan has lived in a community which included environmental intentionality as part of its focus. She and her family had a strong emphasis on living simply on a low income, a lifestyle which she tries to practice as much as possible in her daily life. Susan doesn't own a car and gets to most places by bicycle or public transportation. She sees this lifestyle as being grounded in her Ethical Culture beliefs.
Susan Rose is an Ethical Culture Leader serving as the Dean of the Leadership Training Program of the AEU and as the Leader of the Ethical Society Without Walls (ESWoW), the AEU congregation serving people who are not able to attend Ethical Culture Societies in person. As Dean, Susan is pleased to be part of helping the Ethical Movement grow by helping to meet the needs for leadership in a variety of ways. She was instrumental in developing the program to commission lay members as health care chaplains.
A lifelong Ethical Culturist, Susan was raised in the Ethical Movement attending the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture's Children's Sunday Assembly from the age of three. She was a member of the Ethical Culture Society of Essex County for ten years serving in many roles, including president during a time of great growth at Essex. She also served as a representative to the AEU Board for five years and as the liason between the Board and the AEU Membership Committee. The experience of being such an active lay leader at Essex, combined with her participation in the Human Faith Project, led Susan to pursue Ethical Culture Leadership. She was certified as a Leader in 1999.
