As much as we may like to think of ourselves as individuals with our own thoughts, ideas, and feelings, we create our individual selves out of the milieu we live in.

Our thoughts are limited by the languages we have acquired, our ideas are (at least for the most part) based upon the work of others, and even our feelings are greatly informed by our culture. In this talk, Leader Bart Worden will explore some of the benefits and obstacles of our “borrowed” individuality and offer some ideas for making the most of our situations.

Bart Worden is in his 24th year as ECSW’s Leader and has recently increased his time with our congregation which has afforded him more opportunities to work on projects and engage with people in the larger community. Bart is also the Executive Director of the American Ethical Union, the national federation of Ethical Culture and Ethical Humanist Societies, and in that role, he works to spread the joys of ethical humanism to new people in new places and to support the activities of our Ethical Societies across the United States.

This will be a hybrid event. You can join us at our building or on Zoom.
