“Shoulds & Oughts: Is There Really Such a Thing?, Pt. 2” A Discussion on Morality (bring a friend)

People stay true to moral colors, studies find | The Source ...

We’re not interested in pushing religion on anyone; we’re interested in discovering what is actually true.

Hey TD!

This Friday, we will be following up our discussion on ethics with a discussion on morality. Though similar, they are distinct and complementary.  Whereas ethics speaks to the “oughts” of life, morality speaks to the values that undergird those “oughts”; where do our values come from and are these values subjective or objective? Are they personal, socially constructed, or transcendent?

We’ll be in both large group and small groups as we attempt to get further in figuring out (or even discovering!) the values we actually live by, want to live by, … or should live by. Small groups will be mixed this week (mixed gender, mixed leaders).

Invite your friends to join us (including your friends that came last week) as we take another step in this journey together. Again, it will be an environment where each person and each opinion will be respected and given a fair hearing while actually working towards the best answers. We’re not interested in pushing religion on anyone; we’re interested in discovering what is actually true.

Please give the name of your friend to your small group leader, so we know to expect them and can admit them to the room.  Unknown names will not be admitted (which happened last week).

Hey TD!

We’re going to have a very engaging TD meeting this Friday, discussing an ethical case study or two and considering a few different theories on whether ethics really exist, and if so, on what grounds.  Are there true and legitimate “shoulds” and “oughts” in this life or are they socially constructed?

We’d love for you to invite a friend or two to the discussion to give them some exposure to TD, the God of TD, and to experience an environment of fairness, open-mindedness, thoughtfulness, intellectual integrity, warmth and care.  It doesn’t mean that all of us will agree to everything (and differing views is welcomed!), but it will be an environment where each person and each opinion will be respected and given a fair hearing while actually working towards the best answers.

Please give the name of your friend to your small group leader, so we know to expect them and can admit them to the room.  Unknown names will not be admitted.
