From the Leader
Hugh Taft-Morales shares an article, Ethical Inspiration, originally written for the Baltimore Ethical Society based on a Platform he gave there in May. I hope you will be as inspired as I was.
Community Calls are a way that we can connect with each other more closely - we can hear each other's voices and learn a bit more about each other. Our calls have been on the first and third Sundays of each month, in the afternoon. At our meeting with ESWoW people at the recent AEU Assembly, there was the suggestion that we might try other times such as Sunday evenings, or weekdays. I'd like to have your input about times might work well for you, keeping in mind that we need times that are workable across the US.
No Community Call on July 17 - we've been having a low turn-out, so we're going to just have calls on the first Sundays of the month for the summer.
Please join us on August 7 for Catherine Bordeau, Leader-in-Training, working at the Brooklyn Society. She will be talking to us about her visions for the future of Ethical Culture, particularly incorporating a younger audience than we often reach.
Dialogue Group - from Sally Leete
You are invited to join our lively and personable discussion group this coming Sunday, 7.17.11, at 5 pm Eastern, 4 Central, 3 Mountain & 2 Pacific Times. Bring your passions, whether pro, con or neutral (surely we all have at least one - but you're welcome if you don't). Together we hope to shed some light from a varied and ethical perspective. One member might bring up illegal immigration, another the loud volume on TV commercials that advertisers continue to bombard us with despite common consideration and federal law. Someone else is interested in the backward movement of women's reproductive and economic rights in the 21st Century after the 20th Century ushered in women's right to vote in the US, 1920, and Roe vs Wade, 1973. And then there are things like road rage, cell phone etiquette, and murdering wolves and Beluga whales for fun & profit.
Please call the Conference Call dial-in number at 209.647.1000. Your access code is 689836#. Remember to add this to your address book, as the numbers don't change. You are welcome to pick up the phone even if you're not at your computer on the 1st & 3rd Sunday of the month, roughly an hour or so after our ESWoW Community Call, starting at the times above. Hope you can join us!
Happy Summertime from Sally Leete, 530.750.0400.
Yours in Ethical Community,
Leader, Ethical Society Without Walls
