Self-reflection and our social nature require us to shape a more humane world. Spiritual life is rooted in self-reflection, but can only come to full flower in community. This is because people are social, needing both primary relationships and larger supportive groups to become fully human. Our social nature requires that we reach beyond ourselves to decrease suffering and increase creativity in the world.
Join us as we explore the sixth commitment and how it can help us lead more ethical lives.
Sunday Ethical Education for Kids (SEEK) will be in session, from 10:30 until noon, the same time as our meeting.
