Doing the Right Thing (Charles Colson & Robert George)
This six-session video-based study 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 video sessions and accompanying participant’s guide encourage you to examine yourself and how ethical and character issues relate to your life at home, school, and your workplace. As a result of this discussion and self-examination, you and your group will exhort each other and promote an ethic of virtue in your spheres of influence and in the culture at large.
