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

Spiritual Preparation

Consider the guiding Principle for this session, "Justice, equity, and compassion in human relations." Reflect on your most recent successful collaboration with one or more people. You may have collaborated on a project, a trip, a decision — you can even reflect on the collaboration involved in leading Principled Commitment. What made this collaboration successful? Was it playful or serious? How did justice, equity, or compassion play into the collaboration?

Consider the three essential collaboration skills outlined in the workshop: the ability to engage in healthy conflict, the ability to juggle divided loyalties, and the ability to solve problems. How do you think you do in each of these skills? Which is the most difficult for you? Why? How might you work on that skill in your personal relationships?
