    The 8th Principle

    "Journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions"

    Tapestry and Racial Justice

    Gustavo Arellano Endorses the 8th Principle

    The 8th Principle

    Learn about the Racial Justice Task Force

    Tapestry, A Unitarian Universalist Congregation, seeks to build a beloved community with an ever deepening sense of spirit, diversity, and inclusion. In service to that goal, your Board of Trustees endorses adoption of the 8th Principle and encourages all voting members of the congregation to vote for adoption of the 8th Principle when we bring it for a congregational vote at our Annual Meeting in June 2024. In doing so, we acknowledge that the 8th Principle's adoption alone will be insufficient -- we must be accountable to living and practicing the 8th Principle together in order to achieve its promise and our shared vision. May we answer that call in loving community with joyful hope and committed action.

    The mortgage on Tapestry’s building is currently $970,000. Since we first borrowed money to purchase the building, we have refinanced once and received several generous donations. Our monthly mortgage payment has gone from $7,000 a month to $5,000 a month.

    When we finally “Burn the Mortgage”, hopefully sooner rather than later, an additional $60,000 per year of pledges will be freed up for other uses.

    The Board has agreed to budget for a 13th payment each year to put towards mortgage payoff. Tapestry has a designated savings account to accumulate these and other funds. The account balance is already $28,000. When it reaches $50,000, we can repay an investor and again reduce the monthly payment.

    Every dollar contributed to the “Burn the Mortgage” fund permanently reduces our operating expenses. Any donation, large or small, that you can offer to this effort gets us that much closer to being debt free.

    Donations will go to local organizations serving those without homes. Especially needed are healthy small serving size foods, and small containers with a pop off lids that do not need to be heated. Sometimes people are able to get access to hot water—so instant oatmeal, cup- of-soup, cup-of-noodles, and instant drink mix can work. Also wanted for those who have homes but are food-insecure.

    COVID Policy

    Masks are no longer mandated for attendance at Tapestry events. Our official stance is that masks are ENCOURAGED, but not mandatory. We want you to decide carefully for yourself, knowing that being in a closed environment with a lot of people, including singing does create a higher risk.

    In addition, we are no longer mandating vaccines for attendance. However, anyone who wishes to attend who is not vaccinated MUST wear an N-95 or KN-95 mask. We will have those available at the Greeter's table.

    If you are experiencing any symptoms of illness whatsoever, please stay home to minimize the risk to your congregational family. Our services will continue to be available on Zoom for you if you are feeling under the weather.

    Please let us all work to keep each other safe and healthy as we begin to loosen our COVID policies.

    Join Us Online

    Live Tapestry worship is also available for viewing on Zoom. Anyone who is not able to participate in person is encouraged to participate online. Please fill out the form at the top of this page to request Zoom access. We welcome you!
