In this six-session small group Bible study (DVD/digital video sold separately), Doing the Right Thing, from Chuck Colson, Robert George, and an all-star panel examines how ethical and character issues relate to life at home, school, and the workplace.
Doing the Right Thing explores the ethical and moral breakdown 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.
This Participant Guide encourages 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.
This examination of ethics consists of six sessions, each designed to last approximately one hour. Each session consists of thirty minutes of video and thirty minutes of discussion.
Session topics include:
- How did we get into this mess?
- Is there truth, a moral law we all can 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
Designed for use with the Doing the Right Thing Video Study (sold separately).
