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 Sundayâ€™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 donâ€™t yet know. Thank you to everyone for your everyday hospitality and kindnesses. Iâ€™m honored to be a member of this community.
