“Doing the Right Thing”, a new Six Week DVD/Facilitated Men’s Group lead by Bob Poteat starts Monday 5/7 @ 7pm
How can we, as a society, do what’s right even in the face of powerful temptations and incentives to do what’s wrong?
Join hosts Brit Hume, Chuck Colson, Dr. Robert George and a distinguished panel as they undertake a six part exploration of Ethics before a live student audience in Princeton, NJ. The panel, students and interviewed guests will examine and discuss these questions over six thirty minute sessions:
• How did we get into this mess?
• Is there truth, a moral law we can all know?
• If we know what is right, can we do it?
• What does it mean to be human?
• Ethics in the Market Place
• Ethics in Public Life
“A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon the world” – Albert Camus
Doing the Right Thing explores the ethical and moral breakdown that is hitting culture from all sides. Through panel discussions, interviews, and live student questions it raises ethical issues in a non-condemning but challenging way, stimulating thought, discussion, and action. The DVD sessions and accompanying participant’s guide encourage viewers to examine themselves and how ethical and character issues relate to their lives at home, school, and the workplace. As a result of this discussion and self-examination, participants will exhort each other and promote an ethic of virtue in their spheres of influence and in the culture at large.
Not a day passes without another shocking news story that makes us wonder what kind of culture the next generation will inherit. The sheer greed involved in the sub-prime banking crisis and Bernie Madoff’s theft of billions of investor dollars are just two examples in our own country. How did we get here?
On the international scene, the more obvious indicators chill and dismay us: children being used in the international sex trade, reports of genocide and obvious repression in Africa, the ongoing regimens and routines of hatred in the Middle East, religious oppression, wars and rumors of wars.
At the family level the story is more familiar but no less tragic. Divorce, with all its attendant havoc, continues at high rates, including among religious families. Addictions of all kinds are flourishing, especially among the young. Violence and cheating have infected the schools on a surprising scale, and alarming reports of teachers preying sexually on their students are coming to the fore.
Individually and corporately, the evidence continues to mount of a serious crisis of character. What used to be a nagging suspicion is now revealed daily: something is terribly amiss in our society.
We must get on the playing field and winsomely retake the high moral ground–before it’s too late.
The time is right for a bold movement to help rediscover Natural Law and to apply it in their personal and professional lives. Time is of the essence if we are to help turn our culture around and you can be a vital part of it in your spheres of influence.
