Our Covenant Of Right Relations
Ours is a covenantal church. Latin for "come together," covenant means a "solemn agreement" or "promise from the heart" regarding a course of action between parties. The practice of promising to walk together is the core of our faith. (from UUA.org)
Simply put, it is a guide for the behavior we expect from ourselves and each other. We are bound together by the promises we make to one another, and we recite our covenant during every worship service.
We honor each individual’s spiritual journey.
We celebrate life’s abundance in service to each other, our community, and the world.
We connect with each other in love, respect, and acceptance.
Thus do we covenant together.
We are a church that believes in...
Exploring Spirit with Joy: We celebrate our spirituality through teaching, learning, laughter, song, dance, and love.
Reinventing Community: We expand community by sharing our gifts of energy, time, food, talent, and wealth.
Inspiring Justice & Responsibility: We champion civil, economic, and environmental justice in our community and the world.
Empowering Through Love to Transform Lives: We challenge ourselves to extend our loving community beyond the bounds of our congregation by affirming fair and responsible treatment of every living thing.
We gather in sanctuary. Here we are free to pursue our own individual spiritual journeys in an atmosphere of acceptance, compassion, and celebration.
We seek to build a community where what we believe is less important than how our beliefs guide and inform our participation in the world.
We create a safe haven for children to develop their own ethical and moral compasses.
We seek to build a community that honors our aspirations and imaginations and allows us to explore the transcendent mystery of our universe.
We’re nestled on five acres of wooded land not far from the center of Dallas giving us the best of two worlds – accessibility and solitude. Our labyrinth is a perfect spot for meditation and reflection in the midst of nature.
The UUA has designated us as a Welcoming Congregation. This means we have taken classes, participated in educational events, and organizational assessment so we could become more open to the needs and desires of the LGBTQ community.
