Understanding: The Assignment by Dr. Je’ Exodus Hooper

May 19 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

We seek to understand each other. Understanding creates relationships. Understanding is rooted in epistemology – a way of knowing. The worth of knowing, the worth of understanding is learning to create a better world. Take on the need to apply learning and understanding so that we can elicit the best in each other and thereby the best in ourselves.

The history of the Ethical Culture Movement had been a long journey of uncertainty and unprecedented ideas. Dr. Felix Adler, although well educated and informed, made up this philosophical and religious formation each and everyday. In this platform, we will seek to appreciate and explore uncertainty, seek meaning, be generators of ideas and agents of change. You are the assignment: you matter. You shape your role, your assignment.

Jé Exodus Hooper (them/they) is an arts and cultural community curator, clergy, and scholar, who has served the Ethical Culture and Congregational Humanist Movements for over eight years while an instructor of performance theory at Ohio University School of Theater. Dr. Hooper repurposes the Humanist message with alive spiritual intensity, cultural complexity, and persistent intellectual urgency.
