Family Home Evening in 5 Minute Prep Time
Grab the June 2009 Ensign and wrap two gifts; one with a cookie in it (or other fun item), and one with a rock in it (or a "not so fun" item). Then call the family together.
1. Discuss the three elements of agency from the article on p. 47 June Ensign (even if you have not read the article, you can easily find the three elements on pp. 47-48).
2. Show the picture of the blindfolded man about to fall off the cliff. Have a family member read the caption under it.
3. Have two family members each choose a wrapped gift and open it. Ask if they would have made a different choice if they had been aware of what was inside both gifts. Read the paragraphs associated with the second element of moral agency and discuss how knowledge helps us to make better choices.
4. Conclude by reading the final paragraph of the article about the "gift" of moral agency.
