“Covenant and commitment, not comfort, should be the binding fabric of UU congregations.”
“Many of our congregations are in trouble, with dwindling membership, participation, and financial contributions. A factor that contributes to this decline is our inability to address issues of inclusion, equity, and diversity.”
“Institutional changes required are extensive.”
