Spiritual Preparation, Workshop 6: Responsibility

In "Virtue Ethics," a Tapestry of Faith program

Being responsible can be a burden if we feel we have to solve all the world's problems by ourselves. Some people become overwhelmed by their own sense of responsibility, and give into feelings of impotence and become apathetic. Others take responsibility for justice causes to such a degree that they neglect responsibilities to family, friends, or themselves. Moderation is the key. How do you find balance in your practice of the virtue of responsibility?

If responsibility is coinage, how do you spend yours? Are there justice causes you feel dedicated toward, and others you feel you cannot spend time on? Have you struggled with competing responsibilities? If you have insights into what works for you, consider sharing them with the group, in an appropriate manner.
