Unitarian Universalist Church of Palo Alto Relational Covenant


We of the UUCPA have adopted this Covenant to inspire and guide our interactions with one another. We come together to create a community committed to a free, open and loving search for spiritual meaning. Our community calls on each of us to extend compassion and kindness; to act from courage rather than fear; to treat one another with respect; and to honor one another’s contributions. We commit to listen to one another, to acknowledge and address disagreements, and to express our concerns directly with those involved. We embrace diversity for it is our differences that enrich us; we embrace democracy for it allows our voices to be heard; we embrace forgiveness for it opens us to hope; and we embrace this life for it is what we have together. We accept responsibility for making our community everything we want it to be.
