Family Covenant Groups | Everyone Welcome!!
First Unitarian Religious Education families are invited to participate in Family Covenant Groups. Three groups currently exist (some are more active than others)..
What is a Covenant Group?
"In these gatherings of six to ten persons, usually meeting twice a month to build spiritual lives, each member holds on to the same moment through personal sharing and by asking for or by listening to the details, texture, content, feelings, and ideas packed into someone's experiences. As people pay active attention to the details of each other's lives, this gathered community can extend a moment of time until it is filled to overflowing with the thoughts and feelings that turn time into an experience that is not fleeting, but abiding, because we are now fully present. Sacred time begins here." Thandeka
Covenant Groups can be organized however you want, but these "models" of family covenant groups predominate.
Why Should I Add One More Thing to My Overclocked Life?
Can your busy life not benefit from sacred time? From deep sharing? Listening? Of paying attention? To be sustained by one another? To be held in trust? What is stopping you, then? Come and be made whole. Come.
Here's One Reason Why | Dec 2016
Katy Rank Lev's family covenant group recently gathered five placement bags for the Foster Love Project. That's five kids who will receive a message "you are loved" from our church during a very challenging time.
