                        Congregational Covenant                           All

 

                        In the tradition of our free and inquiring faith, we covenant:

  • To seek truth and work for justice, honoring, respecting, and learning from the differences that each of us brings to our community;
  • To respect ourselves and those around us, recognizing that our individual spiritual paths collectively shape our community and the wider world;
  • To communicate with one another lovingly, attentively, respectfully, and honestly, knowing that listening leads to learning;
  • To contribute to the growth of our community with the gifts of our active participation, our words, our public commitment, and our money.

May it be so.
