Virtue and Are You Good Enough?

We will be kicking off our new year with a focus on service work. If you live in the area and wish to join us for service oriented projects throughout the year, please join http://www.meetup.com/Volunteer-South-Florida/ Our next event, helping out at Flamingo Festival, will take place on January 25th. For more events, please check out the events page.

Starting in February there will be a weekly audio meditation and teaching available for a $5 donation. A portion of the donation will go towards a different charity organization each week. Funds raised and donated will be tracked on our giving back page.

Daily Reflections
Aristotle, a virtue ethicist and famous philosopher, believed it was important to understand the meaning of virtue and to practice being virtuous. Today we will spend some time reflecting on a series of questions in order to discover how virtue plays a role in our lives. Please record your answers in your journal. I think you will find that they reveal a lot about who you are. What is virtue? Are you virtuous? Would you like to be more virtuous than you already are? Is virtue related to what is good? How does what is good tie into who you think you are? Are you good enough?
