Read your congregation's covenant and the ones commonly used by contemporary Unitarian Universalist congregations found in Handout 1, Congregational Covenants. Take time to consider the meaning of these covenants in the congregation and in your life. You may wish to light a candle or in some way create a sacred space and moment to deeply connect with the meaning, the joys and the responsibilities of being together in religious community.
You may wish to ask participants to engage in this same spiritual practice so that they, too, arrive at the workshop centered and ready to engage with the material and the group.
