Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Principled Commitment: An Adult Program on Building Strong Relationships

Spiritual Preparation

Take some time for reflection or journaling on your own. Consider the guiding Principle for this session, "Justice, equity, and compassion in human relations." Reflect on the connections between trust, justice, equity, and compassion in love relationships. Are there aspects of your spiritual understanding or your religious practices that help you trust people, or trust the universe? If there are, engage with those practices and understandings. If there aren't, think about practices and understandings that can help enhance your sense of trust.

You may also wish to spend some time considering your own responses to the questions on Handout 2, Why Do I Trust?
