Sunday Platform “What We Live For"


With Bart Worden


Executive Director of the American Ethical Union



Felix Adler, Ethical Culture’s founder, said in his inaugural address, “There is a great and crying evil in modern society. It is want of purpose. It is that narrowness of vision which shuts out the wider vistas of the soul. It is the absence of those sublime emotions which, wherever they arise, do not fail to exalt and consecrate existence.” His hope was that Ethical Societies would inspire people to a deep purposefulness, an expansive vision of humanity and a passion for realizing each person’s worth and dignity. This would lead us toward a richly humane and just society. How well does Adler’s concern reflect our concerns today? Bart Worden is Executive Director of the American Ethical Union, and clergy leader of the Westchester Ethical Society.
