9:30 a.m. — Adult RE: What We Choose: Ethics for Unitarian Universalists – Session 5: Natural, Legal, and Human Rights

This is the fifth of a ten-session intermediary course designed for UUs seeking to follow a faith of deeds, not creeds, by focusing on the moral and ethical questions that arise in life and explore ethical frameworks to help sort through a dilemma. In this session, we will examine the TN Valley UU Church Shooting and how our understanding of natural, legal, and human rights guides our actions.

Kids will present The Christmas Spider, a Szopka Puppet Play from Poland, and, with Harper Golden-Brown as Sankta Lucia, lead us in the traditional Nordic ceremony centered on the struggle between light and darkness (with treats for all!).
