ReFocus group norms and expecations

Hi all-

Here’s a summary of the values and norms we talked about this morning.  It was great to have all of the input. 


  • Community
  • Diversity of opinion, background, experiences
  • Respectful Dialogue
  • come to be challenged, yet want to come back for more!

Other things we listed as important to us…

  • Share only what you feel comfortable sharing
  • it is a safe environment, non-judgmental and confidential
  • welcoming and inclusive..we need to be mindful of cliques
  • listen carefully and attentively – we are committed to getting to know each other
  • be ready to be provoked
  • come as you are able – each week stands alone and all are welcome
  • Please bring us your needs – we are a generous group, but we are not mind readers!

Hope you have a great week – come to Compline Wednesday night at 5:30 in the Great Hall for a short prayer service and pizza!  If you are not sure what it is, here’s the wikipedia take.  John
