I’m not one to belong to groups. I didn’t have a want or need to belong to one. My Covenant Croup is the exception.
I’m in a covenant group at UUCG. I have been part of this group for over a year. These meetings have become important to me.
We come from different backgrounds. We live different lives. But, we have come together to share our thoughts and beliefs.
We trust each other and that in itself is a huge accomplishment. We can discuss anything within the group knowing that it will stay there. What happens in the covenant group, stays in the covenant group.
They have helped me get through many of the difficult days that I have had this past year. I thank them dearly. I love them all. They are my small family within a larger family at UUCG. I belong to this group and that is a good thing.
I hear you loud and clear, Rita. It takes a little while to get to know people in any kind of group, but in covenant groups we discuss the themes that are essential to our human condition so the bridge between us is already built. It helps too, that we revisit our stories time and again except we look through a different lens each time. It’s a great way to move through our personal story and find fellow travelers!!!!
