Staff covenant of right relations ~Two years ago, members of our staff --Leslie Hebert, Jessica Gray, Diana Dorroh, Ila Stoltzfus and I-- began working on a document of right relations. In most UU congregations, such an agreement between persons on how they promise to relate with one another is called a covenant. We thought you’d be interested in the language of our covenant: • “We promise to value our ministry of leadership to our congregation as a team and to offer our loyalty to that team.

 “I’m not a joiner.” “I see myself on a spiritual quest.” “I’m a Buddhist.” These are the three most commonly heard expressions for not joining our church. Here’s one I heard several years ago: “One of these days when I get my life together I’m going to check out the Unitarian Church.” My reply was: “Don’t wait that long.” Fortunately, my reply got a laugh.

Members here are having heartfelt discussions on the topic of the Covenant of Right Relations. This is good. I hope our membership will be on hand for the Annual Congregational Meeting on Sunday, May 20th. Please be generous in your giving. If you have no financial contribution on record for this year, please call our church office. We need the participation and the commitment of every member.

 Have you thought of something nifty to give to the church auction? Trips, a cabin for a weekend, jewelry, collectibles, gift certificates, a meal that you can cater, outings, and fine art –these are sure winners that bring delight to bidders. I’m offering a sermon topic of one’s choice to the highest bidder. I can be bought at least one time each year –for a good cause. Be creative. See you at the auction, Saturday, April 14th. And bring your friends. The hors d’oeuvres are terrific each year.

We frequently discuss right relationship in small gatherings in our church. Right Relationship is part and parcel of our covenant. What shall be our agreement towards one another? How shall we treat one another?

When I get a chance to watch something other than a news program on television, my choice is likely to be Six Feet Under, a remarkable show that earned the praise from media critics as well as from several in our church when it was first running on HBO.
