The Way We Are With Each Other
A UUCC AFFIRMATION
We will make ours a positive, welcoming environment -- one that includes the diverse perspectives of our spiritual community and builds a sense of connectedness.
We will practice direct communication in all facets of UUFC life, using the power of our words to work toward solutions rather than additional problems.
We will refrain from spreading hearsay.
We will nurture each other’s spiritual and personal growth by entering into conversations and interactions with compassion, deep listening, and respect for differences of opinion without judgment.
We will value and express appreciation for each contribution, whether it is time, money or effort.
We will acknowledge conflicts, address them openly and honestly, and resolve them as close to their source as possible, using mediation if necessary.
We will practice forgiving each other and ourselves.
