Description of Activity

Participants play a game replicating real-life situations involving ethical decisions.

At the end of the game ask how participants decided what was right and wrong. Do they ever think of the UU Principles when they play this game or when they make decisions in daily life? If so, are the Principles helpful?

Including All Participants

If some participants have limited mobility, you might wish to have the group remain seated, or at least give individuals a choice between standing and sitting when they speak.
