We will learn a bit about a few sets of "rules" that purport to make us better people (10 Commandments, etc.) and then we will evaluate them: What is the focus of each set? What behaviors do they encourage and discourage? And, here's the challenge: can we - a group of well-intentioned, but still very different people - do better? Most of our time will be spent on table work and sharing the results, so come prepared to think about your "rules," past and present and what you would propose for us all.
