Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray, President of the Unitarian Universalist Association
with Rev. Rachael Hayes in the sanctuary
We’re all connected: an interdependent whole. Therefore, says Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray, “covenant is our religious response to our fundamental interdependence.” We make promises about how to be together, and how to be in the world. We also fall short of honoring those promises, inviting us to repair and strengthen the strands of community. The choice to mend broken strands of the web is an act of faithfulness.
The liturgist for this service, Rev. Erika Hewitt, UUA Minister of Worship Arts, coordinated a wide range of worship and music leaders for you to enjoy—including original songs composed just for this service.
Members of the UU Society of Amherst’s Committee on Shared Ministries will present a covenant developed after conversations with the congregation.
