Lunch with Hugh – The Magic of Humanism!
Come gather for informal lunch conversations with Leader Hugh Taft-Morales at a place to be determined. (Email Hugh for the location at firstname.lastname@example.org.) He will host discussions about the final two 300-word entries – on September 12 we’ll discuss “Goodness.” We’ll chat about these short readings, as well as whatever else you’d like to talk about. You can get a copy of The Magic of Humanism, written by James Croft, Leader of the Ethical Society of St. Louis, here: https://ethicalstl.org/who-we-
