On Wednesday nights October 17, 24 and 31, our Director of Lifespan Religious Education Tamar Wasoian will lead a discussion class which will focus on how we engage with ethical concepts, dilemmas, and questions. Exercises will help you clarify and expand your ethical understanding by examining how you have arrived at ethical positions that you hold. Come and explore new perspectives, identify areas for further questions and exploration, and perhaps more fully embrace ethical positions you reach through careful discernment. The class on October 17 will focus on the Locus of Moral Authority. The class on October 24 will examine The Common Good. The class on October 31 will concern Cultivating a Virtuous Character. Each class will be held in the church library starting at 7:00pm, following our weekly Wednesday Night dinner and worship service.
