Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: What We Choose: An Adult Program on Ethics for Unitarian Universalists

Spiritual Preparation

Part of What We Choose

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?
