How the church can be a safe place

A Safe Place Covenant
(Short Version)

 Examine:       We will ask, “Does this contribute to love?” before we do anything.

Engage:          We will act with respect, compassion, and generosity toward every person.

Listen:            We will look for what is good in others, listening to their whole story.

Speak:            We will speak only for ourselves, except to speak up for someone who is hurt.

Act:                 We will make people feel safe when they are with us.
