“What Moral Debt, If Any, Do We Owe Our Ancestors”
Rev. William F. Schulz preaching
We know we owe moral obligations to our living earth mates, to our children and to future generations. But do we owe them to those who have gone before us, to our parents and grandparents, to past generations? Is this a benevolent idea (it’s good to feel gratitude to those who shaped us and sacrificed for us) or is it an insidious one (“Keep those Confederate monuments!”)? Bill Schulz, our Affiliate Community Minister, who has recently been sorting through twenty-five boxes of family papers going back to the 1880s, will help us sort through this conundrum.
