OUR CONGREGATION'S COVENANT
(Leader: Add the text of your congregation's covenant to this handout before copying for the group.)
COVENANTS COMMONLY USED IN UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST CONGREGATIONS
Love is the doctrine of this church,
The quest of truth is its sacrament,
And service is its prayer.
To dwell together in peace,
To seek knowledge in freedom,
To serve human need,
To the end that all souls shall grow into harmony with the Divine-
Thus do we covenant with each other and with God.
— Arranged by L. Griswold Williams
Love is the spirit of this church,
and service is its law.
This is our great covenant:
To seek the truth in love,
And to help one another.
— James Vila Blake
In the freedom of truth,
And the spirit of Jesus,
We unite for the worship of God
And the service of all.
— Charles Gordon Ames
