N.Y. Society for Ethical Culture-Concert Hall Ethical Culture is a Humanist and Ethical movement inspired by the ideal that the supreme aim of our lives is to create a more humane society. We stand for separation of church and state. We believe acting morally does not require belief in a god. We place our faith in the demonstrated capacity of people to do wonderful things. We believe in the worth and dignity of all living beings. We believe that all individuals have:     * Inherent worth and dignity     * The potential to grow and change     * A responsibility to strive for ethical growth     * A responsibility to treat others so as to help them realize their fullest potential     * A responsibility to create a better world     * A responsibility to help build an Ethical Culture community that welcomes and involves others As an Ethical Culture community we believe that:     * We are all part of something that transcends the individual experience     * We have responsibilities to each other, to the Society, and to the community at large     * We are enriched through our interconnectedness with others     * We find confirmation and validation of our own selves and beliefs through our interactions with others     * We derive strength through our relationships with others
