Strengthening Moral Courage in Public Life: Moral Feeling

Part of Westminster Abbey Institute's spring events season, Feeding the Soul

Why should we be moral? What motivates public servants to keep serving the common good? Claire Foster-Gilbert will argue that our moral sensibilities arise from the way we perceive the world around us. She will suggest perceptions that can refresh our vision and evoke a will to be good, describing the spheres of interdependent life in which all participate; the sacredness of creation; the priesthood of all humanity; and the Sabbath principle.
