When have you acted with compassion toward someone else, with the understanding that your action was the “right” thing to do? What were the circumstances? What questions or possibilities did you entertain before choosing to act? What motivates you to help others? What is the difference between what you might do for a friend and what you might do for a stranger? Can you expand your own circle of compassion? How do you determine what is the compassionate response in a given set of circumstances? How do you stay in relationship with another when acting out of compassion? Do you see acting with compassion and respecting relationship as choices or skills related to cultural norms or expectations for your gender? In what ways does a lens of gender add a new perspective to your understanding of ethics?
We will offer summer services over Zoom at 10 am each Sunday starting July 5 through September 6, 2020. Sheri Linn will serve once again as our Summer Services Coordinator.
Due to ongoing concerns related to the COVID-19 Pandemic, services will be held remotely via ZOOM. (unless communicated otherwise this summer). For administrative purposes, participants will be asked to register for each session through the link published. To register for these services CLICK HERE.
This year, summer services are organized around the UUA’s Tapestry of Faith curriculum called “What We Choose: Ethics for Unitarian Universalists. Among the topics explored in this curriculum are moral authority, unchanging truths, the collective good, cultivating virtuous character, natural, legal and human rights; narrative ethics, relational ethics, ethics from the margins, and an ethic of risk.
Blessings, Sheri Linn
