Family Stories


Join Senior Leader Amanda Poppei and Rev. Nancy McDonald Ladd (Senior Minister, River Road Unitarian Universalist Congregation) as we weave together stories of humanist ancestors (from the broadest possible sense of inclusion) and humanist descendants.

Is There Sanctuary For Us on Earth?

Amanda will explore the concept of sanctuary–as in refuge, a place of safety–and how we do, and don’t, experience these places of safety in our lives.


Where have we been? Where do we wish to go? Explore these and other questions with Christian Hayden, member of the Philadelphia Ethical Society and FES, as he leads attendees in an evolving exercise.
