Community and Ethics Conversation

  • Aug 4, 2013 · 10:30 AM
  • Kristine's House

The Sunday Community and Ethics Conversation is about serious conversation on topics that matter to Freethinkers. Each week we take a subject to task, learning from each other and sharing ideas. We usually begin with a brief period of sharing, building the bonds that make community by talking about the things that concern us and the things that have brought us joy. Freethinkers are encouraged to ask for and offer help and support with the worries and intentions that are expressed. The discussion is moderated with a light touch to keep the focus on the topic and make sure everyone gets a chance to participate.

We expect to have guest speakers from time to time to help spark informed, useful conversation.

This week's topic: Pride, self esteem and humility. Religion tells us pride is a sin and humility a virtue. What is the nonreligious take on these ideas? Can either be objectively considered as positive or negative traits? Is there a difference between expressing  and experiencing them?

=========
While this is an adult conversation it is also a family friendly event. We are creating a complimentary children's ethics and community event.

========

Please submit idea for topics you would like us to incorporate into this series of ethical attentiveness.

    How long do these run? I will come late if I can, but not if it's almost over.
