Sunday Platform Meeting: To be Human Is to Belong @ Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture

We are social beings, and one of the most basic of human needs is to belong. We may have different strengths of that need from person to person and at different times of our lives, but we all need to feel we belong somewhere. We want to be part of something greater than ourselves. Seeking a sense of belonging is a very strong human motivation. The need to belong can sometimes motivate acts of cruelty to those outside the circle of belonging. How do we fulfill our own need to belong in ways that are ethical? How do we welcome others into our circle of belonging?

Our speaker, Jone Johnson Lewis, is the Interim Clergy Leader of the Society.
