As we wade ever more deeply into the Presidential election year, we find ourselves inundated with the candidates’ claims, assertions, opinions, promises, boasts and accusations.

The voters’ job is staggering — to separate information from misinformation, fact from exaggeration, and, just as importantly, moral commitment from selfish motivation.

This week, our Roundtable discussion will focus on What Really Matters to each of us in determining who will be our next President.

Once each month, on Sunday mornings, the Westchester Community for Ethical Culture offers a forum for discussion and debate on a wide variety of topics — some controversial, some vexing, some puzzling, but all requiring careful examination in an ethical context. This series is known as the Living Ethics Roundtable.

It is open to WCEC members and non-members alike; there is no fee, nor any requirement to participate other than a willingness to exchange thoughts and opinions with respect and civility.

The format for the Living Ethics Roundtable sessions is simple:

  • We begin at 10:30 a.m. with a light, mid-morning refreshment – coffee, tea, pastries.
  • At 11 a.m., we gather in the large meeting room for a brief orientation to the day’s topic, and to distribute worksheets for discussions that will follow.
  • We then divide into two or three groups – the roundtables. Each roundtable group is moderated by a designated facilitator.
  • The discussions are planned to last approximately 45 minutes. Participants then reconvene in the large meeting room to share highlights and conclusions of the roundtable discourse.
