How Do You Keep Group Discussion Safe?
Not long after we moved into the neighborhood, I discovered that some neighbors had already come up with the idea of starting a spiritual discussion group—before I had even had a chance to introduce them to Q Place! I wanted to support their plans, and knowing the common pitfalls of discussion groups, my question for them was, “How are you going to keep it safe?”
How can you keep any discussion group safe for everyone to express opinions and not be judged, safe for people to believe differently and still be friends, safe for quieter people to express themselves and not have the loudest voice carry the day?
These neighbors saw my point pretty quickly, and they were very interested in seeing how Q Place’s Guidelines would start their group on the right track, with a safe environment where group members would be able to express what they believe without getting into arguments.
