CANCELLED – “What is Humanism?”
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, BES will not hold platform on Sunday, March 15th nor Sunday, March 22nd. While we are saddened to cancel our regular platforms, the health and safety of our members and our community is a priority. We will post updates on our future events as the situation develops.
Ethical Culture is just one expression of a broad array of perspectives found under humanist tent. Some of the adjectives used to identify different forms of humanism include secular, religious, congregational, literary, modern, and ethical. What is it that all humanists share? How do other organizations that embrace the humanist label explain humanism? How are we portrayed by those who see humanism as a threat to their worldviews? Come explore these questions with Hugh Taft-Morales.
Hugh Taft-Morales joined the Baltimore Ethical Society as its professional leader in 2010, the same year he was certified by the American Ethical Union as an Ethical Culture Leader. He also serves as Leader of the Ethical Humanist Society of Philadelphia. His presence in Ethical Culture has been termed “invigorating.” Taft-Morales lives in Takoma Park, Maryland, with his wife Maureen, a Latin American Analyst with the Congressional Research Service, with whom he has three beloved children, Sean, Maya, and Justin.
