9:30 a.m. — Adult RE: What We Choose: Ethics for Unitarian Universalists – Session 6: Narrative Ethics

This is the sixth 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 life of Harvey Milk and how our consideration of our own stories and those of others helps guide our ethical and moral choices.
