The covenant is the silk that joins our spiritual community and individuals within it into a web of interconnection.

This is my covenant to you:
I will respect your spiritual path and support you on your journey. I believe that the paths are many but that the goal is the same.
I am here for the light of love that shines within all of us.
I will seek to find the inherent beauty that lies within you, treat it as a tender lover and speak to that place as I may.
I will hold this community as a precious gift, nurture its well-being as it nurtures mine and respectfully abide by its decisions.
I will give with joy, bringing contributions both personal and material.
I will always remember that we are connected, that another’s loss is mine, another’s joy is mine and this will be my guide in our time together.
