Sunday Meeting - Simply Because It Is the Right Thing To Do

Dr. Joseph Chuman, Leader

Patricia Bruder Debrovner Presides

Felix Adler referred to Ethical Culture as “The Religion of Duty.”

It is a rubric in this age of individualism we probably would not wish to promote to advertise the movement. We live in an age in which we highly prize our individual freedom, our desire to do as we please, unencumbered by obligations to others. The American idea is often equated with such individualism. But I will argue that the notion of rights requires responsibilities and duties, and the very idea of freedom implies a constraining context. In addition to a defense of individualism, I will put forth the idea that we are born into a web of social obligations and recognition of such obligations is a vehicle toward a richer humanism.
