Event Details

Boundary Training and Best Pastoral Practices

Far more than a reminder not to engage in inappropriate relationships with parishioners, Boundary Training (required of all active UCC clergy every three years) engages participants in a discussion about the complex connections inherent in pastoral ministry —

  • Can parishioners be our friends? Our dates? Our dentist?
  • What about friendship on social media? What is wise and what is foolish?
  • When may we accept gifts from parishioners and when must we decline?
  • Can even innocent and appropriate hugs prove problematic?
  • What is projection? Transference? What's the difference and why does it matter?
  • What about our congregations — do they ensure children's physical and emotional safety?
  • What financial practices which encourage health and transparency?
  • How do we create safe and nurturing spaces where others might find healing and hope?
  • In short, how can we best provide hospitality to all?

Bring your stories and your questions to this enriching day for all.
