Spiritual Preparation, Workshop 1: The Locus of Moral Authority

In "What We Choose: Ethics for Unitarian Universalists," a Tapestry of Faith program

Recall an important moral or ethical decision you have made, and use the following focus questions to help you think about your decision-making process:

  • What was the dilemma and what decision did you make?
  • What framework or ethical precepts guided your decision making?
  • What was/were the source(s) of those precepts? Was it your conscience? Family, community, or cultural values? The wisdom of a moral or religious thinker? Literature? Scripture? Reason, or a scientific understanding? Some combination of sources?
  • Why did you decide to grant that source the authority you ultimately gave it?
