Sunday Meeting-Ethics and Ethical Culture: Taking Life's Meaning Seriously



Dr. Joseph Chuman,Leader

Meg Chapman Presides 

Felix Adler's adage in describing Ethical Culture was "deed before creed," and not "deed without creed." By so stating, Adler intended that behavior was ultimately more important than belief and that there was no unifying creed required to participate in Ethical Culture. But by so saying, he was also implying that out deeds, our behaviors, should at best be justified and guided by our beliefs, recognizing that different people will believe differently.

It is our beliefs which give life meaning, and for Ethical Culturists those beliefs should center on ethics. In my June address, I plan to sketch some ethical frameworks which can inspire our actions and thereby deepen our sense of meaning and purpose in life.


Entry to our 100-year-old building and meeting rooms is available for most wheelchair users with prior arrangements. Please call ahead  [masked] x 107) for setup of our portable system and plan to arrive one hour before start time.
