Materials for Activity

Preparation for Activity

  • Send Handout 1 to all participants in advance of the first workshop and make copies to have on hand.
  • Post newsprint.

Description of Activity

Distribute Handout 1. Invite participants to review it briefly, noting that most will have already read the guidelines before this workshop.

Write on newsprint participants' suggestions, concerns, or additions to the list. Decide together if you will make changes to the guidelines presented in the handout. Invite the group to covenant together to honor and uphold the guidelines. Ask each person to signal assent by saying "yes" or nodding. Explain that this is a living document that can and should be changed as the group evolves.
