|About||The Ethical Humanist Society of Chicago is a self-governing, inclusive, caring community for those who seek a rational, compassionate philosophy of life.|
|Mission||While respectful of the faiths and traditions we have been born to, we serve as a new religion or as an alternative to religion. We believe in deed beyond creed and in working for a better world. We recognize the worth and dignity of every person, and strive to act so as to bring out the best in others and thereby in ourselves.|
We focus on the ethical values that bring people together, not on the beliefs that keep people apart.
In the spirit of intellectual, philosophical, and artistic freedom, we come together to explore life, nature, and the universe.
Like traditional religious communities, we celebrate births, conduct wedding ceremonies, and host memorial services.
We provide for the ethical education of our children, based on rational, critical thinking.
We believe in working together for a better world, and strive to act so as to bring out the best in others and thereby in ourselves.
