Communication Covenant

First Parish of Saco Communication Covenant

Recognizing that we are all Children of God, created equally in the image of God, therefore deserving of respect and required to have integrity as individual persons, and recognizing that the work of community involves understanding and embracing diversity, we covenant with God and each other, to communicate in the follow ways:
Value input from everyone equally.
Encourage all to participate. Monitor the length and frequency of our own comments during conversations.
Listen attentively to everyone involved. Use electronics constructively and respectfully.
Describe behavior, with love and without judgment, when giving feedback, being mindful to focus on the issue not the person.
Speak directly and respectfully to the person with whom we have a concern.
Tell your own stories, speak of your own experiences and avoid reporting the grievances or experiences of others. Use “I” statements.
Engage in collaborative dialogue.
Respect and honor the confidentiality of all private information.
Empowered through this covenant we will seek reconciliation as children of God and followers of Jesus Christ.

  Adopted 4.10.17
