Jé Hooper, AEU Leader-in-Training and Mossler Fellow, spoke on September 24, 2017 at the Philadelphia Ethical Society about “I FEEL Good: The Best Human Condition.”
I FEEL Good!! This proclamation is best expressed by a song written by James Brown. Feeling good and doing good are two different kinds of motivational modalities that inform and affect each other. Doing good is not necessarily ‘the above all and end all’ in approaching social justice work and ethical engagement: it is an action that is best felt. Let us explore our emotional intelligence and evoke our deepest human capacity to not only serve people with our hands but our heart. I invite you to feel good!

What is required is focus on building a massive base of members. If just 25% of each states population were AEU members, it would be a tipping point. Also, The time is ripe for the many faithful leaving corrupt religious organizations but still feel spiritual and want to help others. ... See MoreSee Less
