Question and Ethics: What do I do when family secrets come to light?

In this episode of Question and Ethics, I answer a question about family secrets. How do we react when secrets come to light that change how we see our family members or ourselves? Is it dishonoring to reveal those secrets or should we desire to make things known? This situation reveals something about our desire to understand our own story and how to make sense of it in light of this new situation. When these situations become known, we can ultimately take comfort in the fact that we are not the sum total of our genetic material or family line. 

Join me each episode as I walk through your questions and ethical dilemmas. You can submit your question to [email protected] (and I’ll never use your name unless you ask me to). I hope you’ll subscribe and leave a review or comment.

We live in a fearful and cowardly time. The crisis we face is not a crisis of clarity but a crisis of courage.
