Speak the Truth in Love

Q – Our Formation Director overwhelms the members with much religious information not relevant to the subject we are discussing. How can we voice our concerns without hurting her emotionally?

A – In a healthy council or group, members must speak the truth in love. When any member—Formation Director, President, or anyone else—is overwhelming the members, this must be firmly brought to her/his attention. Each council member plays an important part to bring balance and direction to the council. In our Formation Guidelines, see Fr. Aloysius’ talk, “The Beatitudes as Integral Part of the Promise,” p. 66
