Taking It Home, Workshop 10: Locus of Moral Authority Revisited
In "What We Choose: Ethics for Unitarian Universalists," a Tapestry of Faith program
The first step in the evolution of ethics is a sense of solidarity with other human beings. — Albert Schweitzer
Find a family member, a friend, or another trusted conversation partner and share your reflections on what you learned in this program and the evolution of your own moral decision making.
Pay attention to ethical dilemmas that surface in your personal, work, and community life, your congregation and the broader world. Consider how the decisions and choices under discussion raise moral or ethical arguments. Frame your responses to these dilemmas using your own ethical framework, and try:
- Explaining to your children, your friends, or your partner or spouse the moral reasoning behind a decision you make.
- Writing a letter to the editor or a blog post, using moral reasoning to make your point.
- Working with your congregation's Social Justice, Membership, Partner Church, Safe Congregation, or other congregational committee to which you belong to articulate the moral or ethical framework that supports the group's choices and actions.
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
