Scott Mabe

March 25 - Scott Mabe:  The Puzzles of Evil and Altruism

Scott will explore the Puzzles of Evil and Altruism as they are expressed in human behavior. Is evil, defined as something that is morally wrong and causes harm or pain to others, an inherited part of being human or does it have to be learned? Likewise, is altruism defined as charitable acts that are motivated purely by desire to help other people, inherited or learned?

Scott is an amateur organic gardener whose main focus, this time of year, is preparing his gardens and beginning tomato transplants in his greenhouses. Scott and his wife, Beth, live in Middlesex county. Scott earned his graduate degree at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Prior to his retirement, Scott was a family counselor for 25 years, and later taught sociology and psychology at Rappahannock Community College for 15 years.


Assisted Listening Devices Available.

For anyone who might benefit from using an assisted listening device in our services, excellent equipment is available. Both a ceiling mike and a wireless mike provide a good pickup that is sent wirelessly to these devices. See Tom Kinney, Bob Weekley, or Don Lowrey to try one.

Participation and sharing . . . are the strengths of our fellowship.
