A covenant gives authority to shared intention. A creed creates
them. A covenant invites a relationship. A creed is a prescription that must be relied on. A covenant relies on the treasures of shared truth.
As members of the Unitarian Universalist Church of the North Hills, we covenant that:
We will support our Church community by being welcoming, kind, and inclusive.
Remembering our mutual responsibilities, we will enter into any conflict in a positive way, speaking with people directly, without divisiveness, honoring boundaries, always assuming good intentions.
We will listen by being honest, open-minded, respectful and compassionate.
We covenant to live our shared UU faith by walking together in the spirit of love.
Come visit us to see the difference between creed and covenant in action. You will find that you will never have to pretend to believe something ever again.
