St. Louis Ethical Society & South Place Ethical Society

Thanks to David Warden for information about St. Louis Ethical Society.

St Louis Ethical Society motto is "Deed before Creed". See Quick facts and Philosophy and Beliefs of Ethical Culture.

Some people choose the Ethical Society as their community without viewing Ethical Culture as their religion because to them "religion" means dogmatism and the worship of a supernatural God. For many members, however, the Ethical Society serves as a religious congregation where they build a community of friends, find inspiration and purpose, celebrate the seasons, and clarify their world views.

The closest equivalent organisation in the UK is the South Place Ethical Society at Conway Hall in London.
