Moral Authority and Our Narrative (Story)

paseotrinityWe love stories. Good stories. Personal stories. My friend and mentor, Rick Davis, is writing a series on “Moral Courage.” He writes weaving a number of narratives. Using American history, family story, and vocational experience.

The last paragraph in his fifth post in the series should spur you to go over and folloow the series.

Morality as moral assertion requires that we think about things others do not think about in ways they do not think about them, that we arrive at moral conclusions in untimely fashion, that we  correct ourselves always to the more generous and compassionate position and that we learn to make the invisible sufferer plainly visible, so that he and his oppressor might be delivered from the burden of oppression. Fully evolved, morally mature man will work as hard on his moral foresight as on his moral insight.
