Covenant 

    Love is the doctrine of this church

    The quest for truth is its sacrament

    And service is its prayer.

    To dwell together in peace,

    To seek knowledge in freedom,

    To serve humanity in fellowship,

    To the end that all souls shall grow

    Into harmony with the divine:

    Thus do we covenant together.

Sharing of Joys and Concerns 

Wait and see, wait and see what a world there can be if we share, if we care, you and me…
