Board of Trustee – Goals for 2022
• Encourage the Congregation to support Adult Literacy projects in addition to the Children’s Literacy program introduced in February in coordination with Reading Partners. We believe this is in keeping with our First Principle, Promoting the Inherent Worth and Dignity of Every Person, because no one can achieve that sense of worth and dignity of they cannot read
• Find ways to help the Congregation to include in its budget, pledge-supported projects that will fund un-filled Committees, like Social Justice and Green Sanctuary. We believe this is in keeping with our Second and Seventh Principles, Promoting Justice, Equity and Compassion in Human Relations and Promoting Respect for the Interdependent Web of All Existence of Which we are a part.
• Include activities to encourage Conflict Resolution and Practicing Difficult Conversations with one other, in order to maintain good relations within the congregation and promote those kinds of relations with other organizations within our sphere of influence.
