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

Spiritual Preparation

Part of What We Choose

Set aside time for journaling, reflection, prayer, and/or meditation, using these focus questions:

  • What people—famous or not—do you think have lived a virtuous life? What actions and qualities can you point to that make their lives virtuous?
  • What virtues are most important to you?
  • What guides you when you decide your action is virtuous?
  • Are there times when acting virtuously causes personal risk? Do you have experience with such risk-taking, perhaps in a social justice stance? How do you view this kind of sacrifice? Is it worth it? Does being virtuous require risk-taking? Are there times when we must risk all for change and justice?
