Lay-led Summer Services – What We Choose: Ethics for UUs

“Natural, Legal and Human Rights”

Our Unitarian Universalist Principles call us to affirm and promote “the inherent worth and dignity of every person” and “the right of conscience.” In which ways are these principles foundational to your ethical decision making? What other principles or rights are foundational to your ethical and moral decision making? What actions or positions do you take in your personal or public life that reflect a commitment to uphold certain rights? From what authority do the rights you uphold derive? If you have to choose one side or the other on an issue, and no gray area is allowed, are you stymied? In what ways do we use ambiguity to protect us from having to move on issues?

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.

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.
