Staying Safe. Staying COnnected.
In the spirit of valuing human connection, we'd like to share some information that may be helpful as we experience the COVID-19 pandemic. In accordance with CDC recommendations the Ethical Society Mid Rivers is closed to the public until further notice but, in this day and age, we can meet digitally, and connect with other Humanist congregations.
The Ethical Society of St. Louis’ is hosting virtual Platforms. Everyone is welcome to participate in these events. All you need is internet access and a spirit of adventure! Find the links and information on the Ethical Society of St. Louis website.
In addition, Ethical Societies around the country are hosting online activities. You can check them out via the American Ethical Union’s website. It's a great opportunity to get to know a bit more about fellow humanist congregations all around the country!
ESMR is also planning online meetings as well. As soon as the details are formulated we will share the details.
STAYING POSITIVE, HEALTHY AND CONNECTED
It is important to follow the advice of the World Health Organization, and the Centers for Disease Control, as well as local health officials. Stay informed, but limit the time you spend reading or watching stories about the pandemic. Focus on the many opportunities associated with it that are uplifting and positive. Now is the time to practice our humanist values, by connecting with people however we can, reflecting on what’s really important in our lives, and staying hopeful about the future.
Although we are isolated as we practice social distancing, we are all in this together!
