As leaders of the Tapestry, A Unitarian Universalist Congregation, we covenant to put purpose before personality and politics. We are here to support each other’s religious quest, thus we will honor one another’s dignity and listen and disagree with respect. We will strive to be open-minded, provide one another opportunities to be heard, and trust one another enough to be honest. We will take ourselves less seriously and our jobs more seriously, focusing on issues, not people, and accepting constructive feedback gracefully. In this way, we serve our own spiritual development, one another, our religious home, our larger faith, and our world.
