The following suggestions are offered to ease the implementation of this program. Each congregation has its own process, so use whichever suggestions are applicable to your situation.
Space and Accessibility
The room used for Principled Commitment workshops should be comfortable and accessible to people with disabilities. Tables will be necessary for some activities, and you will need space for a chalice, refreshments (if served), and an easel, positioned where it can be seen easily by all participants. A music player may be helpful for some activities.
To enhance participants' experience and limit distractions, set up a space that offers privacy to the group, as well as a separate room for child care with a qualified provider. In addition, place a sign at the room entrance to limit interruptions by alerting others that a workshop is in session.
Ideally, you will have other rooms available nearby to use as "breakout" rooms if some couples or small groups need to be in a quiet or private space for their discussions.
