What We Choose: Ethics for Unitarian Universalists Field Test Call
Amber Beland and Manish Mishra-Marzetti; Developmental Editor, Gail Forsyth-Vail
We are regularly faced with moral choices, big and small. How should we respond to a tricky family or relationship situation? What is the right thing to do when faced with a dilemma at work? What is the most ethical course for a community, state, or nation to follow, and how much am I prepared to invest in advocating for that course? How do morality or ethics enter my food and eating choices? How should morality or ethics enter my consumer decisions? How do we treat others? What must I do to follow the values of my Unitarian Universalist faith tradition? We often find we develop, clarify, and expand our ethical thinking in response to a personal crisis or an event that calls our world view into question. However, this program offers an intentional process of engagement with others in examining ethical concepts, dilemmas, and questions. Participants clarify and expand their ethical understanding independent of a personal crisis. They deepen and expand their knowledge and skills for a process of ethical reflection that is central to living our Unitarian Universalist faith.

Field test congregations and groups will be asked to complete their field test by June 2013 and to submit feedback electronically, through an Internet survey site. Field test groups need not use all the workshops; we do, however, ask that you use at least 6 and that you tell us in advance which ones you plan to use.
