A Covenant

I commit ...

to become the best version of myself

to make and keep agreements with great care

to be constant through conflict

to give myself fully to the process of transformation through the expression of love

to trust the good intentions of each of us

to relate with respect and acceptance

to enter fully into life's experiences

to awaken to my awareness of my unique role in the universe

to acknowledge the inner and interconnectedness of all creation.

So be it!

-- Covenants of the Goodenough Community. A Goodenough Story, a Goodenough Life: An Experiment in Community Formation and Self-Governance (Goodenough Community, 1993).  Quoted in Homiletics, 5/3/1998.
