I apologize for the inconvenience if will cause those who were scheduled to attend this evening's discussion of "The Gender of Ethics", but I've decided to reschedule the event. I've had laryngitis for the past few days, and it hasn't yet gotten any better. I'm certain I wouldn't enjoy the discussion nearly as much as I might if I were able to vocally express my views, and more significantly, an inability to make myself heard would make it virtually impossible to effectively moderate the discussion. I've therefore decided to postpone the discussion by one week. I hope this won't unduly inconvenience anyone who was planning on participating in a discussion this evening, and perhaps it will allow others to participate who would not otherwise have been able to do so.
I hope to see many of you NEXT Monday for an interesting discussion of "The Gender of Ethics".
Given a moment's thought, most of us can almost certainly think of questions for which we've not yet discovered a fully satisfying answer. Most of us can identify significant issues that have no obvious resolution. Join us as we consider a variety of relevant topics in an atmosphere that facilitates an exchange of ideas ... the sharing of alternative points of view. If you think you MIGHT have an answer worth considering, come share it with us. If you KNOW you have THE one and only answer, this might not be the group for you. The "With an Open Mind" Discussion Group uses a "moderated" discussion format. The discussion leader will keep the discussion focused and encourage adherence to established ground rules that give EVERY participant the opportunity to share his or her thoughts in a non-confrontational manner. No advance preparation is required. No political or religious perspective is assumed or excluded. The expectation is that all who participate will, during the course of the discussion, further develop their own, personal views through publically voicing their current thinking and respectfully listening to the thoughts of others.
