Perhaps have heard the call from Prison Fellowship Ministries CEO Jim Liske to "join us" in a movement to restore ethics and virtue. (Colson Center is a part of PFM). We want you to be a part.
First, we encourage you to go through the entire video series with us, especially if you have not gone through it yet. We have a new way to experience the series. We have divided the series into twelve 26-minute shows for television and also for home viewing. These are showing on television on the NRB channel, airing on Monday nights; and are also available on demand on our Web site for a limited time. Please check our information page.
To get involved, w encourage you to get on our email list and begin receiving newsletters about how we can help this movement to spread. You can sign up for the regular newsletter on the DoingTheRightThing.com home page.
With regard to our newsletters on virtue and ethics, we do have an announcement to make. Beginning mid March, we will combine our lists for Doing the Right Thing and Renewing Virtue and mail a single regular monthly newsletter to all. We apologize for not being regular with these newsletters in the past, but we are renewing this effort and combining several interest areas to make this much more effective.
Finally, if you want to become a facilitator in this movement, we will soon begin offering leadership guidance through a new online community. Look for news on this soon, but be sure and get on the list. To sign up at the facilitator level, please go to the get involved page here and fill out the form.
God Bless You in your efforts and welcome to a great movement!

If someone is (for example) a witness to murder he could have prevented without harming himself, is he as guilty as the perpetrator? I know that is a rather simplistic situation, but I believe it is apropos to situations like the recent Penn State scandal...
Was the U.S. justified in bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki?
By: John|Published Date: August 02, 2012
One of the most controversial decisions in the history of the U.S. military was undoubtedly the use of nuclear weapons against Japan. Though the bombing concluded World War II in decisive fashion (and likely saved the lives of millions of Americans) the human cost has often been condemned.
Was this action morally permissible? Why or why not?
An enormous amount of money has been poured into AIDS research, but the same amount of money could potentially save more lives if directed against other diseases. Should the study of AIDS continue at the same level? Why or why not?
A number of Eagle Scouts have turned in their badges to the Boy Scouts of America, in protest over the organization's exclusion of gay youth and adults. Much like Chick-fil-A, the BSA has been the target of much criticism for its traditional-values stance.
Is the BSA's stance moral? Is this an appropriate way to express disagreement? Why or why not?
