Breaking Covenant: Repair, Restore, Renew, A Workshop


April 10 Congregational Life is offering a workshop on Breaking Covenant. Learn more at the UUA website: (https://www.uua.org/midamerica/news/blog/breaking-covenant-workshop).
Category: General

Every congregation has experienced destructive behavior that has caused upset, tumult, and conflict, from microaggressions to outright aggression, and other forms of inappropriate behavior. In the process, covenant is broken, even when the covenant might not be explicitly stated. The impact of the behavior can baffle leaders, and congregations often don’t know how to repair, restore or renew their community. It is therefore important that every congregation recognize that the holy space between each of us is everyone's responsibility to grow and maintain and when it's broken between any people it's broken between us all. We need to have policies and procedures in place to deal with destructive behavior.
