On Ethical Activism (Part 2)

by Tanya K. Thompson

An important lesson journalism school taught me is that a writer should read and re-read his or her work before submitting it to the editor. But many writers are so obsessive about their work that even after a piece is published, they’ll keep re-reading it, finding a word or line that could have been phrased […]

On Ethical Activism (Part 1)

by Tanya K. Thompson

Last Sunday (5/22) the Ethical Culture Society of Westchester’s (ECSW) leader, Bart Worden, gave a thought-provoking talk on ethical activism.

Ethical Culture Rejuvenation Day

by Bart Worden

The last Sunday of every February is now Ethical Culture Rejuvenation Day. This holiday was created to be a holiday that is exclusive to the Ethical Culture movement. Holidays exist to bind a community together by celebrating shared values and traditions. Ethical Culture does not have many holidays that it can call its own. It […]

Amnesty International

Another aspect of its work are campaigns on various human […]

A Collaborative Chorus

by Bart Worden

The ECSW chorus has been a cooperative effort this year. While on paper I am the chorus director, nothing could have been achieved without the participation of the members. All of them did much more than just show up and sing. The performance at the Winter Festival is a perfect illustration. It began with selecting […]
