Since the opening of the Bread Church many years ago, the 'Code of Respect' has governed how we interact with and treat one another. These concepts are clearly posted in the main room over the central information bulletin board. Rather than create a list of things we are able to 'do' or 'don't do,' Somewhere Else uses this Code of Respect as a guideline for our relationships with one another. These are concepts which have proven to be timeless over the years and continue to be highlighted.
All volunteer facilitators and employees receive time for training and reflection upon each of these areas. In addition, we do our best to occasionally discuss these concepts during our regular breadmaking & worship sessions together as a gentle refresher!
We do our best to introduce visitors to this community to each of the items within the Code of Respect. We have found that when we focus upon these areas during our time together, we are able to shape a valuable and rewarding experience... and ensure that everyone knows that they are valued and affirmed!
Here is the list of priorities for the Bread Church's Code of Respect:
