Find Out More, Session 2: The Gift Of Covenant

In "Wonderful Welcome," a Tapestry of Faith program

The quotation that begins this session comes from "From Creed to Covenant," a sermon given by Rev. Lisa Ward on November 17, 2002 at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Harford County (Churchville, Maryland). From Creed to Covenant: Roots of Unitarian Universalism 

There are a few different versions of the seven Unitarian Universalist Principles for children. The UUA Bookstore sells stickers as well as the colorful fold-out, My 7 Principles: A Child's Booklet , using this wording:

1. Each person is important.
2. Be kind in all you do.
3. We're free to learn together.
4. We search for what is true.
5. All people need a voice.
6. Build a fair and peaceful world.
7. We care for Earth's lifeboat.

History of the UU Covenant

There are several accounts of how the Unitarians and Universalists developed a set of Principles in 1960 and covenanted to affirm and promote them as a unified religious denomination. One is The Premise and the Promise: The Story of the Unitarian Universalist Association by Warren G. Ross.
