Taking It Home, Workshop 9: Commitment
In "Principled Commitment," a Tapestry of Faith program
Affection Connection — Commitment
Extend your exploration of commitment by trying one or more of these activities on your own.
For Couples: Managing Change
With your partner, try applying the model explored in Alternate Activity 2, A Model for Managing Change, to one or more situations involving your relationship.
[Leaders: if you choose this option, include Leader Resource 3, A Model for Managing Change, as part of the Taking It Home materials.]
For Individuals: Reflecting on Commitment
Take some time to journal about the commitments you have made to yourself, your partner, your children (if applicable), and the greater world. What commitments — stated and unstated — have you made to each? Are there more or fewer commitments than you expected? Which commitments are most core to your identity? Which commitments are made more from necessity than desire? Which commitments do you most want to affirm, and how will you affirm them in the days to come?
For Couples with Children: Changes in the Family
Discuss "change" as a family. What has changed in your household recently? How did everyone respond? Try applying the model explored in Alternate Activity 2, A Model for Managing Change, to the situation.
[Leaders: If you choose this option, include Leader Resource 3, A Model for Managing Change, as part of the Taking It Home materials.]
