COVENANT OF RIGHT RELATIONS PREAMBLE:
As a welcoming congregation, our goal is to inspire a sense of awe, joy and reverence in people of all ages. We celebrate through words, music and the arts. We actively covenant to be an inclusive, diverse, and sustainable community. We each contribute to the work of the church. We provide a safe and nurturing haven for free thought. We treat each other with loving kindness. We cultivate growth and celebrate the changes growth brings.
Our Covenant of Right Relations: Within and beyond the walls of the Unitarian Church of Lincoln, we honor the principles and sources of Unitarian Universalism. We covenant to treat one another as we would wish to be treated: with respect, regard for healthy boundaries, accountability, open-mindedness, and equanimity, freely offering our tangible and sustained stewardship and engagement to realize our vision and mission.
We strive to be guided in our thoughts, words and actions by these attributes and the supporting Statements of Intent found in our handbook upon which we mutually agreed. In day-to-day practice, we covenant to begin our interactions with an assumption of best intentions, to truly listen to one another rather than awaiting our turn to talk, to assure that what is true for each of us is heard and considered, and to share only our own stories, honoring the privacy of others. These are our aspirations.
