Covenant lies at the heart of our faith: a shared agreement on how we should be together. Our religion is made from an ongoing, interlocking, and organically growing series of promises we make with our communities, congregations, and the world. Article II contains, among other things, the covenant that our congregations make with each other, a covenant that forms the Unitarian Universalist Association, to uphold principles that shape our understanding of how to be Unitarian Universalists.
As we think about what we need from a revised Article II, we want to ask: What do we need to promise to each other now, starting the 3rd decade of the 21st century, and going forward? How do we covenant in a way that leads us into the fullness of who we can be as a faith?
Members if the Article II Study Commission facilitated this conversation between Rev. Meredith Garmon, Rev. Bill Sinkford, former UUA President and current UUA President Rev. Dr. Susan Frederick Gray.
