A Covenant is a set of sacred promises that Unitarian Universalists make with each other to guide and support their communities.
First Unitarian Society of Ithaca adopts this covenant to sustain our commitment to each other, affirm our connections when we struggle, and form the foundation of our respectful relationships with each other and the world.
We covenant to:
Be together in community, guided by love and respect.
Be open, friendly, and welcoming to all.
Be engaged in congregational life.
Communicate compassionately, directly, and honestly.
Listen deeply and kindly to each other.
Believe in others’ best intentions.
Support and inspire each other’s quest for truth and meaning
Acknowledge, respect, and value our differences.
Work to serve our community’s shared goals.
