On May 23, 2021, Foothills Unitarian adopted the 8th Principle, which states:
“We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote: journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.”
The 8th Principle is our proposal to be in covenant with the Beloved Community. Covenants can change a culture. They hold the potential to transform relationships, communities, and institutions.
