SPARK – Ethical Fitness
2 Lake Street, San Francisco, CA
In ethics, it’s usually the big issues — capital punishment, lifeboats, euthanasia — that get all the attention. However, being a good person in the real world of jury duty, time-share offers, and Internet bargains poses more frequent challenges to our consciences and our society. Being an ethical person is not about having ready-made decisions; rather it is a byproduct of a process that requires training and practice. Strive for “ethical fitness” through a “workout” with “personal trainer” Rachel Brodie. Lively conversation and text study guaranteed to make you a better person (or at least an even more thoughtful one)!
