Proposal for Committee of Right Relations

Proposal for a Committee on Right Relations

A study committee has been convened to provide a proposal for a Committee on Right Relations for UUFSD at our June congregational meeting. Rev. Jo and the Board have requested that we consider a separate committee to be available to aid in resolving conflicts and strengthening our bonds with one another. The members of the study committee are Robin Mitchell, Kathryn Sturch, Glen Bortnick, and Christie Turner. The written proposal will be published well in advance of the meeting and comments or questions are welcomed at:

Below is our Covenant of Right Relations adopted by this congregation:

UUFSD Covenant of Right Relations
As we walk this spiritual path together, we are mindful of our common need to love and be loved, to support and be supported, to listen and be heard, and to forgive and be forgiven. Therefore, we strive to build a religious community dedicated to communicating directly, respectfully, patiently and lovingly. We strive to be kind to each other and to establish a place of trust and safety. We welcome and respect differences of opinion. When conflict arises we seek clarity and listen more than we speak. Mindful of our own assumptions, we work to achieve reconciliation when we disagree. When the inevitable challenges come in our interactions we will stay in community and reaffirm the values that brought us together.
