The Eighth Commitment

Life itself inspires religious response

Life itself inspires religious response.

Although awareness of impending death intensifies the human quest for meaning, and lends perspective to all our achievements, the mystery of life itself, the need to belong, to feel connected to the universe, and the desire for celebration and joy, are primary factors motivating human “religious” response.

The Eight Commitments of Ethical Culture are central to the Ethical Society of Austin. Please join us as John Theiss continues his occasional series exploring the Eight Commitments and the roll they play in our lives and in the Society.

The Eight Commitments can be found here.

Is the Wall of Separation of Church and State Crumbling?

In light of the recent Supreme Court ruling in the Bladensburg Cross case(American Legion et al. v. American Humanist Assn. et al), how strong is the wall between church and state?

Jon Meador will talk about where we are and what we as ethical humanists can do.

The American Humanist Association has created an FAQ for the Bladensburg Cross Case.
