What are some of the desirable virtues which will help us identify, nurture, and shape the character of the members of the community in general, and leaders in particular? What are some of the conditions which must be present to assist in the acquisition of virtues and to ensure that the desire for such virtues will not be derailed by the pull of vices? Why, for example, in spite of commendable declarations about the importance of character formation, we still continue to read about scandals and moral failures of public servants, politicians, and pastors? This course will help participants gain a better understanding of what it means to have a good moral character and why having a good moral character is something which faithful Christians must cultivate. We will pay attention to the moral character of a leader, drawing lessons from the Bible, the teachings of the Church and Christian ethicists, and look at ways in which leaders, particularly Christian leaders, must be recognisably virtuous people.
