Creating beloved community requires intention and practice. Our covenants articulate our intention, but how do we live into the practice? Right Relations Teams are
lay leaders entrusted to help the congregation practice faithful communication and creative conflict based on values of mutuality and consent.
This training is for congregational teams who will be helping their congregations (or other covenantal communities) live into their covenants.
Six Live Discussion/Practice Sessions
Participating congregations should have a minimum of 3 team members. The training will be limited to 12 congregational teams. (Payment must be received to reserve your spot.)
There will be six 2-hour-long live practice sessions with 2-4 hours of pre-work for each session. Sessions will be 7:30-9:30 ET / 6:30-8:30 CT / 5:30-7:30 MT / 4:30-6:30 PT on October 5, 19, November 2, 16, 30, December 14.
Please fill out the congregational self-assessment before the first live session. We recommend that your team fill out the responses together, preferably with the input of additional trusted leaders. Please fill out only one assessment for your team.
Facilitator: Lisa Napier
