Subject: FW: Group Reconciliation
As a follow up, will article 12 from An Introduction to Christian Mediation be used in the Group Reconciliation? Would you also comment on the meaning of “The parties are required to commit to not divulging information to people who do not have a necessary and legitimate interest in the conflict.” How do you interpret “necessary and legitimate?” Will this requirement be lifted or modified in the Group Reconciliation? Or will people be required to sign a non-disclosure agreement before they can participate?
I am asking for others and also for myself. Your answers have a bearing on my decision, and the decisions of many others, as to whether or not we participate in the Group Reconciliation.
Thanks for prompt answers. The October 14 deadline fast approaches.
12. How confidential is the conciliation process? (from An Introduction to Christian Mediation)
The parties and the conciliators must agree at the outset that with few exceptions the conciliators will not be asked to divulge information outside of the conciliation process or the ecclesiastical structure of the parties' churches. In particular, they may not be subpoenaed to testify in subsequent legal proceedings (see Rules 16 and 17). The parties are required to commit to not divulging information to people who do not have a necessary and legitimate interest in the conflict.
