Covenant of Good Relations

Our Unitarian Universalist faith is not defined by a creed or a set of beliefs, but by our agreements to walk together through life with respect and love.  A “covenant” is an agreement about how to be together, a description of the behavior we aspire to, even when it is hard – especially when it is hard! This covenant was created by the congregation in 2008 to articulate what it takes to create a healthy, sustainable and supportive community.

In my interactions with others in our congregation, I will:

  • be receptive, listening with care and compassion;
  • be truthful, speaking with care and compassion, and speaking directly to anyone with whom I have a concern;
  • be committed to the group as a whole, honoring our long history as a congregation within the Unitarian Universalist tradition;
  • expect that there will be differences among us and accept and care for one another despite those differences;
  • remain engaged with gentleness and respect when times are uncertain, participate in the process, and do my part to sustain this Covenant;
  • honor my responsibility for upholding the spiritual values, traditions and rituals of our community.
