covenant of right relationsWe, the members of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Winnipeg, confirm our Covenant of Right Relations.

As members we seek to make our church a safe place for everyone.

We acknowledge that we are different from each other. We recognize that we are enriched by our diversity and that our differences will sometimes be a source of conflict. We acknowledge that we are all responsible for our own words and actions.

In this light we covenant to:

  • Nurture a safe and welcoming community.
  • Honour each other’s inherent worth.
  • Assume good will on the part of each other.
  • Listen to each other with care.
  • Speak to and about each other with respect.
  • Be honest with each other.
  • Talk directly to each other even if differences exist.
  • Ask for help when conflict is too difficult to handle alone.
