The message was delivered on Sunday, October 6, 2019, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry, at the Humanist Service.
As agnostics, atheists and humanists, it feels so good to let go of inherited or culturally imposed beliefs about a punishing God, and to embrace our inherent worth and dignity. The next step – which sometimes lasts a lifetime - is a struggle to accept our human responsibility for evil in the world. This Sunday we will explore the principle and practice of non-harm as a response to modern day evils. Primum non nocere, first do no harm, is central in the Hippocratic oath taken by physicians, in the teachings of Siddhartha Gautama Buddha, and in the yoga sutras. If you were to practice non-harm for a month, a week, or a day …. how would your choices change?
