A humanist look at the sermon on the mount; Kate Lovelady, Leader

This morning I’m going to be talking about the Bible, which I don’t often do in a platform address, but I thought Easter would be a good excuse to read what people often call the ethical heart of the Christian Bible, a section in the Gospel of Matthew known as the Sermon on the Mount. As an Ethical Humanist, I’m interested in the Bible as a human creation that can tell us about the values of a group of people at a certain period in history and perhaps inspire ethical values today.
