Join the Ethical Society of St. Louis for Sunday morning “Platform” – our equivalent of Sunday church service. Platform includes music, opening words from a member of our congregation, and a half hour talk on a topic of existential, spiritual, and ethical significance. This week our Outreach Director (and member of the Interfaith Partnership’s Cabinet) James Croft will explore the concept of the “soul” from a Humanist perspective. All are welcome!
“Ethical Humanism” (also sometimes called “Ethical Culture”) is the name of an evolving body of ideas that inspires Ethical Societies. Unlike traditional religious congregations, which come together to follow a scripture or the wisdom of a great religious teacher, Ethical Societies are guided by the best human thinking in the areas of ethics, science, and well-being. “Humanism” is the collective name for all that human wisdom, which we seek to use to transform ourselves and our world.

James never stops talking, so it’s lucky that his job requires a lot of it! As Outreach Director for the Ethical Society, James is a public face for the community, ensuring that Ethical Humanist values are represented at rallies and protests, in schools and universities, and in the media. James believes that our culture desperately needs a Humanist moral voice, and he’s determined to provide one. You can often find James yelling through a megaphone or posting on Facebook. He loves Star Trek way too much, and tries to find a way to work a Star Trek reference into every Platform Address.
