“Reclaiming the Light Amid the Darkness,” Joe Chuman, Leader, Ethical Culture Society

Democracy can last only if the public cares about it. Our governmental forms require that they be supported by a citizenry that retains certain habits of mind, certain conventions of outlook and behavior that undergird democratic values and that appreciates their vital importance to freedom and the kind of life we most want to live. We must devote ourselves to renewed education about the vital importance of safeguarding our democratic values and institutions.

12:30 pm: Please join us for Lunch with the Leader.

Our speakers offer thoughts related to the philosophy of humanism or share their experiences and commitments in the struggle to foster peace, justice, economic fairness and racial and religious harmony. Everyone is invited to Sunday Platform meeting.
The Sunday School at the Ethical Culture Society of Bergen County helps children aged 2-14 explore and develop their moral and critical thinking skills through fun and interactive lessons and field trips. We meet weekly on Sundays for 1.5 hours while the adults of the Ethical Culture Society are attending the platform meeting. Our wide ranging curriculum allows kids to examine themselves, their community and the world in general. We teach about different cultures, philosophies and religions. We encourage our students to ask questions, think for themselves and make up their own minds about the bigger questions in life. Our children develop strong values and ethical standpoints. The Sunday School Graduation Rite of Passage, completed by our 8th graders, allows them to present to the community how their Sunday School experience has informed their moral and ethical development.
