Leader Bart Worden

Having just returned from Kansas City, Kansas where I officiated for my son’s wedding, this will be one of the more “short and sweet” posts to this space. Suffice it to say that a wonderful time was had by all and meeting our new family members was a lot of fun!

We are now heading into Week 8 of the AEU Assembly and there are 3 events to join between today and Sunday. I’ve listed this week’s offerings below and if you missed any of last week’s events and would like to view them, Anna has made videos available for each session.

Tuesday, July 27, 8:00pm – 9:30pm ET: REPRESENTING ETHICAL CULTURE IN INTERFAITH SETTINGS with James Croft — 

We live in a multi-religious society and are members of a tiny, often misunderstood minority religion. How can we develop relationships with people of other religious perspectives while effectively representing our own? What unique voice does Ethical Culture bring to interfaith settings, and how can we use that voice to exercise influence? Who are we accountable to when we represent Ethical Culture in interfaith spaces, and how do we best fulfil our responsibilities? Through a series of case studies drawn from his own work representing Ethical Culture in numerous interfaith settings, James will help you navigate the enriching – but potentially treacherous – world of interfaith engagement.

Saturday, July 31, 11:00am – 12:30pm ET: MEET THE BOARD CANDIDATES – with Sue Walton, Chair of the Board Development Committee

Saturday, July 31, 4:00pm – 5:30pm ET: BUDGET AND FINANCE with AEU Treasurer, Tom Castelnuovpo

Hope to see you sometime this week!
