March President’s Message

Covenant Workshop

FUSF PresidentBy Lea MacNider 

In February’s newsletter Jim Hill, Chair of the Congregational Relations Committee (CRC) wrote about the work the committee including Sue Dubinsky, Ed Geiger, Jim Kennedy, Pat Morse, and Gail Chirdonhad done around drafting a right relations covenant. He talked about the importance of covenant as a set of sacred promises that we make to one another for how we will be together in community and faith.

The UUA says, “Covenant is the silk that joins Unitarian Universalist congregations, communities, and individuals together in a web of interconnection.” You are invited to help weave the web of our wonderful FUSF community by participating in a covenant-writing workshop on Sunday April 3. On this Sunday, Carol will deliver a sermon on Covenant and after service we will hold a congregation workshop to draft our covenant. The workshop will be led by a UUA consultant along with Carol and the Congregational Relations Committee. Please sign up to attend by registering on this form http://goHYPERLINK “”

We will vote on the final covenant at our annual meeting in June.

Also, please plan to make the March 13 conversation with Keith Kron, the UUA Transitions Director on the topic of Transition Ministry. I hope everyone will participate in this important meeting.

Peace and Love as we travel this journey together,
