Justice: What is the right thing to do?
Is torture ever justified? Would you steal a drug that your child needs to survive? Is it sometimes wrong to tell the truth? How much is one human life worth?
Harvard's Michael Sandel addresses questions such as these in his popular course at Harvard University. We are fortunate that this class has been made available to the public online in video format. Now we can sit in historic Sanders Theatre with the students and grapple with the same questions. How do we make decisions about what is the right thing to do? You will find more information at www.justiceharvard.org.
The Wednesday Study Group invites you to join us for this unusual class. Each week, we will view a 30-minute video of Sandel's interactive lecture and then expand the discussion using study material from the website. Class leadership is shared. This project is sure to generate some lively discussion! And, hopefully, some insights that will help us lead responsible lives as followers of Christ living in a complex world.
There is no cost for the class. Please join us, and feel free to bring a friend!
