October 1: “On Being a Moral Person”
Rev. Dr. Abigail Rian Evans (Georgetown University Medical Center)
Dr. Evans is a Senior Scholar and adjunct professor at Georgetown University Medical Center and Charlotte Newcombe Professor of Practical Theology emerita of Princeton Seminary. How do we become moral persons? How do we avoid self-righteousness in the pursuit of virtue? Many people believe that moral guidelines are constructed to keep us from having any fun in life. Is this true? If not, then what roles do moral guidelines play in human life?

October 8: “Three Christian Views of Biomedical Ethics”
Dr. Brandt McCabe, convener
with Dr. Nancy Duff (Princeton Theological Seminary)
and Rev. Dr. Jeffrey Vamos
Did you know that the field of biomedical ethics was the product of Christian thinkers whose moral values were the basis for their views? The first session on Faith and Ethics will present the perspectives of three Christian ethicists whose views differ from each other. Even among Christians there is still room for healthy debate when it comes to thorny medical issues. Join us for a lively discussion.

October 15: “Thinking Ethically About End of Life Issues”
Dr. Brandt McCabe, convener
with Dr. Nancy Duff (Princeton Theological Seminary)
and Dr. Holly Tabor (Stanford University Center for Biomedical Ethics)
How do ethical and moral values guide patients, doctors, clergy and families when it comes to end of life issues? Is it ever the right thing to do to “pull the plug” or to refuse food and/or water? How are decisions like these made by people of faith? Come explore how moral and ethical values are applied in this real life situation.
