Dr. Mark Causey- March 26, 2017
What if our first principle talked of the inherent worth and dignity of every being? How do we as people of faith and compassion live in a multi-species world? At the upcoming General Assembly in New Orleans in June, delegates will have the opportunity to vote on making this one word change to the First Principle the topic of a two year study commission. I will explore the reasons behind the proposal and what it might mean for our UU faith.
Mark Causey has a Ph.D. in Philosophy as well as a Master of Divinity degree (M.Div.). He teaches animal, food, and environmental ethics at Georgia College in Milledgeville. He is the current President of the Unitarian Universalist Animal Ministry (UUAM).
