Acknowledging and remembering that we are situated on the traditional land of the Nacotchtank and Piscataway people, and on the land on which enslaved African people and their descendants labored and lived, we gather together in worship. May the words of our mouths, the meditations of our hearts and the actions of our hands point the way toward a more just future. May the memory of those whose love and labor went before inspire us to create a path of greater joy and justice for all who will follow.
People of free faith have long made agreements about how to be together as their best selves, in promises called covenants. We explore the structure of this rich Unitarian tradition and the relationship to the many freedoms we affirm. This will launch a process of exploring a statement of covenant at River Road, led by the Covenant Task Force, at the request of the Board of Trustees.
