This Week at The Ethical Society of Austin

May 20

The Third Commitment

We choose to treat each other as ends, not merely means.

To enable us to be whole, in a fragmented world, we choose to treat each other as unique individuals having intrinsic worth. 

This Sunday we will unpack what this means, and discuss how we see this commitment functioning in our lives and in the world. We will follow up every 6 to 8 weeks with a discussion of another of the Commitments, in order.

You can find the eight commitments and a short explanation under “About” on the  home page.


Our Sunday Ethical Education For Kids (SEEK) will be in session, from 10:30 until noon, the same time as our meeting.


5604 Manor Road

10:00 am – Coffee and conversation

10:30 am – Program begins

Call to Ethical Action!

Ethical humanists are called to give blood at their local blood bank to demonstrate the need for more blood donors and to promote blood donations as a humanitarian act. This act is in support of Sustainable Development Goals 3 (Good Health and Well Being) and 13 (Climate Action). The Central Texas Blood Bank is now We Are Blood. #EthicalAustin #Ethical Action
