The purpose of a Covenant of Right Relations is to guide us in accepting one another in our shared journey and in encouraging spiritual growth as individuals and as a community (our third principle). Workshop participants will create a draft Covenant of Right Relations to be placed on the annual meeting’s agenda for approval by the congregation.
Through small group discussion, large group dialogue and the democratic process, participants will explore such questions as:
- How do we have disagreements with an individual or group, do so in love and respect, and continue to stay in community?
- How do we seek to live the principles and values of Unitarian Universalism by acting with compassion, respect and a high value on interdependence?
- How do we make space and engage in creative dialogue about our individual theologies, the ways in which we make meaning of life and seek to live lives of meaning?
- How do we interact with others in ways that promote a community of integrity, honesty, and open communication?
