This course is an interactive exploration of common Ethical Culture and humanist ideas, principles, identity, and history. For newer members, it’s an introduction to the ideas and principles behind our Ethical Society; and for longer-term members, it’s an opportunity to reflect more deeply on how to make those principles a part of our daily lives, including in challenging situations. This will be held at the home of Mary Ellen and Andy Stanton.

Northern Virginia Ethical Society
Founded September 1983
April 27 Platform will start at 10 AM
NoVES welcomes visitors to our diverse community. People of all types, singles, young and old, many colors, many religious and ethnic backgrounds - all have made NoVES their humanistic religious home. We are an Ethical Society in Northern Virginia, a humanist congregation with members around the greater Washington DC area.
The mission of the Northern Virginia Ethical Society is to help accomplish transformation in ourselves, strengthen our relationships to others, and build a more humane world by offering an Ethical Society that promotes ethical growth and learning, builds and sustains community, implements ethical action beyond our community, and administers itself effectively.
We invite you to check us out on a Sunday Morning and to join us in other activities. You might find - as so many others of us have - the sort of caring, thoughtful community you didn't even know was out there - just waiting for you to become a part of it. We also invite you to 'friend' us on facebook by following this link NoVES. Here is a note from our Leader.
Our regular Platform program resumed September 15, 2013 for the season. We always welcome visitors. Please check the Month at a Glance Calendar for details of upcoming events.

Driving Directions: Take the Nutley Street North exit from Route I-66. At the fourth light, cross Maple Avenue (Route 123) and start watching your odometer. At 0.2 miles, you will see a driveway with “Watch for Turning Vehicles” and “Green Hedges” signs. There will also be an Ethical Society sign next to the driveway. Turn right into the driveway, park in the lot, and take the nearest entrance into the building.
If NoVES must cancel a Sunday Platform meeting, we will post a closing notice on our web site home page, and send an email blast to our members.
