In "Virtue Ethics," a Tapestry of Faith program
Every intersection in the road of life is an opportunity to make a decision. — Duke Ellington
This first workshop lays the foundation for the program by demonstrating how we make decisions and how ethical decision making can shape one's character for life. The workshop presents information on ethical theory. Yet this program is not about theories; rather, it is an opportunity to examine how living our Unitarian Universalist faith calls us to make ethical decisions even though to do so is often difficult. In this and future workshops, participants work together to untangle situations where conflicting ethical standards make it hard to discern the "right" decision.
This workshop introduces anklet making and journaling as spiritual practices to assist in ethical decision making. The youth create a group covenant, a commitment particularly important because of the personal experiences participants may share. Make sure to post the completed covenant where the group can refer to it throughout this program.
