Restorative Practices for Faith Communities 419
Type of event: Training
Covenant is the silk that joins UU congregations, communities, and individuals together in a web of interconnection. The practice of promising to walk together is the precious core of our creedless faith. But what do we do when covenants are broken?
Restorative practices, which involve the skilled use of Circles, provide an opportunity to identify and address harms, restore relationships and mend community.
Grounded in the practice of Compassionate Communication, this training will give an overview of restorative practices, skills and will include hands-on Circle exercises to use what you’ve learned. We especially encourage Youth Leaders, Committees on Ministry and Church Boards to attend.
Restorative Practices are grounded in familiar practices: Youth Touch Groups, Covenant Groups, Chalice Circles, and respectful, direct, honest communication.
For Youth and Adults!
Value of Circles:
Leadership is Shared
Grounded in Mutuality
Based on Respect and Accountability
