At its core, the discipline of Christian ethics is about discerning and pursuing the “good” in our personal, social and political lives. How we go about discerning and pursuing the good is the practice of ethical reflection. This course has two central goals: to equip students to engage in ethical reflection for themselves and to prepare students to facilitate ethical reflection within the congregations and other communities in which they find themselves. To do this, the course is divided into three major components: an investigation of basic ethical frameworks and methods, a series of case studies of contemporary ethical problems, and strategies for facilitating ethical reflection in corporate life.
