Deacons' Covenant

The Deacons' Covenant

Covenant
of the
Board of Deacons
We will be honest with one another.
We will say what we mean and mean what we say.
We will speak to one another with respect.
We will communicate directly with another person, saying "I."
We will not say outside the meeting what we have not said inside the meeting.
We will repeat what others have said to confirm that we have understood them, and ask them to do the same if we feel we have been misunderstood.
We will recognize and identify merit in another person's idea before we note its weaknesses.
We will listen to understand but not necessarily agree.
We will all be responsible for any action that we decide to take as a board.
