Sacred Link Week 7

Category : Transitions

Affirmation

Week 7 in a series of digital sacred conversations about HUCC’s covenant.  Guidance by Rev. Marijke Rossi. 

Our full covenant

Week seven: Affirmation


I am entering into this covenant freely and will strive to live it out as fully as I am able, with the help of God and the support of the community. Further, I will support others as they seek to do the same.


Purpose

The purpose in reviewing the covenant as sacred conversation and in this way at this time is to continue the conversation we started before the pandemic; online because we can no longer meet in person. It is a way that can be helpful and move us along in this process before the new senior pastor arrives. We pray that it will be useful and healing for all of us.

Agreement

We shall start each one of these sessions with an extension of grace and a request for grace, along with the guidelines used for all sacred conversations at HUCC:

  • We will listen as we read to the content here and to other’s responses with respect, with discernment and without judgement.
  • Let us respond in Love and caring for one another.
  • As we respond let us do so with “I” language to promote each person’s voice including our own.

I am entering into this covenant freely and will strive to live it out as fully as I am able, with the help of God and the support of the community. Further, I will support others as they seek to do the same.

This is the last piece of the covenant focus. It has been a real pleasure to dig into the soil of this garden we all live in together. Our awareness of how we live together helps us to keep things clear of weeds that choke our love for each other. The covenant gives us nutrients to grow spiritually and help others to do the same. Like a garden we are all in different places of growth and color.

Please ask whatever questions come up for you as you revisit the covenant you entered into as a member of HUCC.

I invite us to reply to: pastor@holladayucc.org. The replies sent will help to inform the next phase of exploring our move forward.

Blessings, Pastor Marijke
