Using compassionate utilitarianism and cross cultural moral foundations theory to find your way in a complex world.
This Sunday, Myron Hedderson will take you along from the beginning of his personal, life-long journey to answer the question: What really is the right thing to do, and the best way to live one's life?
In a post-modern world where we question tradition and multiple sources of moral authority compete for our attention and allegiance, and some say there is no answer or everyone can live in their own subjective version of reality with their own ideas of right and wrong, finding an answer to these questions can be very difficult. But Myron's been a weirdo thinking weirdly hard about these things since he was 5, and while he doesn't subscribe to any one person or group's idea of moral goodness, he's come across some principles from various sources both ancient and recent that seem widely applicable and come together to provide him a sensible path forward - most of the time.
Bonus: Email your tough or interesting moral dilemmas to firstname.lastname@example.org until the Friday before the service, and he will pick a few for analysis and discussion during the service, and stick around for a discussion afterwards.
