Small group rules

Affirmation
I acknowledge that every person in this group is at a different point in considering,
seeking or following Christ, and I will value and affirm people for who they are.

Confidentiality
I’ll maintain complete confidentiality. What I read and write stays here. Any notes I may
want to keep will not include names or other specific identifying information.

Listening
I understand that others will need to be encouraged to share, to be open and to show
emotion. I will let them do so, without being judgmental, trying to “fix” them or offering
unsolicited advice.

Self-Awareness
I understand that some of us are talkers and some of us are quieter, so I’ll be aware of not dominating the discussion or always leaving the weight of it to others.

Vulnerability
I’ll stretch myself to be as open and honest as I can with my perspectives and experience to create a safe environment that might encourage others to take risks, too.

Conflict
Community can be very messy, and conflicts may arise. I’ll offer grace to others and
won’t leave the group over disagreements, realizing that God might use conflict in my
spiritual formation some way I don’t currently understand
