A thank you to our members

Last Sunday I had the pleasure of breakfasting and lunching with prospective members, and I also met with a Wash U student who was visiting the Society as a cross-cultural experience for an anthropology class. Some of the newcomers had even come back after hearing last Sunday’s platform address on money! What I heard over and over as I chatted with these newcomers and visitors was how welcome our members had made them feel, how open we seemed to new people and new ideas, and how hospitable we were. I felt so proud I had to go blow my nose. Seriously, I was very pleased that these folks experienced us as not just preaching ethical values but trying to live them with each other and especially with those we don’t yet know. Thank you to everyone for your everyday hospitality and kindnesses. I’m honored to be a member of this community.
