Our Covenant

The First Church in Belmont, Unitarian Universalist

Our Covenant with Each Other

 Understanding that caring for each other is essential for the wellbeing of ourselves,

our church community and our world, we will:

~ Welcome, engage and include one another;

~ Communicate with care and honesty;

 ~ Listen with attention and empathy;

~ Honor the many perspectives we hold;

~ Reach out to each other in times of need;

~ Trust in one another’s good intentions;

~ Forgive each other and ourselves for our limitations;

 ~ Share our talents, compassion, and material resources generously

for the benefit of all; and

~ Express appreciation for the contributions

 given by one another to our community.

 

We know that we will not always live up to these aspirations,

 yet we will always try to be guided by the spirit of love.
