Covenant Groups

Small Groups at First Parish

Who are some of the people you covenant with in your life? Who do you feel you’ve made a promise to, and how does that impact your relationship? Have you kept your promises to yourself?

There is a quality of listening that is possible among a circle of human beings, who by their attentiveness to one another create a space in which each person is able to give voice to the truth of his or her life. There is the miracle of authentic narrative, made possible by listening that holds still long enough to let the truth be told. Where there is this kind of listening and speaking, a new kind of community is born – a community of life. – – Rebecca Parker, Unitarian Theologian

You are invited to join a small group – we also call them Covenant Groups.
