Through this covenants we promise to strive:

  • To honor our interactions with others by being present, listening, being respectful of everyone and taking concerns directly to those involved.
  • To trust, even when in disagreement, the good intentions of others.
  • To be inclusive in actions and decisions making and to find shared ground among diverse viewpoints.
  • To respect and adhere to congregational decisions resulting from open discussion and the democratic process.

We affirm through this covenant to create a community that enjoys and embraces its time together, and speaks the truth in love as we pursue the mission, vision and values of our church and congregation.

UUCM Covenant of Right Relations

We are a UU community seeking inspiration to grow spiritually in our personal lives and as a loving community.

INSPIRE

Unitarian Universalism draws from many sources:

  • Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life;
  • Words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love;
  • Wisdom from the world's religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life;
  • Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves;
  • Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit;
  • Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.
