Young Ethical Explorers – First Sunday Celebration: “Being Earth!”
September 6 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
This is an opportunity for youth to create and share presentations with a broader audience. Children from all ethical devotions, including other Ethical Societies and other faith cultures, are welcome to participate with RSVP. Our inspiration for today’s celebration comes from Autumn Peltier, Teen Water Warrior of the Wiikwemkoong First Nation, who advocated for “personhood” for water as a way to protect it. If you would like to create a presentation for this gathering (a speech, poem, drawing, song, etc.) begin with this Compassionate Pen prompt:
“Earth-heart/ Earth-voice”: Speak from an Earth voice that your heart feels connected to. Choose a part of Earth (an element, a place you love, or a part of the Earth that suffers) and give it your “I” voice. Stand up for it. Let it talk to humanity.
September’s theme: “Our Ethical Peace Team!”
YEE has moved online with Zoom, and as always, newcomers and visitors are welcome! To join, please RSVP to Youth Programs Director Audrey Kindred at email@example.com. For more information about our youth and family programming, please visit www.ethical.nyc/youth and YoungEthicalExplorers.blogspot.com.
Ethics for Children is our Humanist Sunday school, designed for youngsters from ages 4 to 13, and takes place concurrent with our Sunday Platform meetings. Sessions raise issues of personal identity and integrity, appreciation and respect for others, and knowledge of religions, philosophies, and social concerns. Topics are explored in an age-appropriate way through discussion, storytelling, dramatization, music, art, games, and field trips.
RSVP is essential to guarantee your place and for planning purposes. If you are enrolled for the season or are members of Ethical NYC your spot is guaranteed. To RSVP as a guest, become a member, or enroll in season, please contact Audrey at YoungEthicalExplorers@gmail.com. Newcomers and visitors are always welcome!
