A covenant is a coming together of two or more parties in an agreement, commitment, or pledge. As UUs, covenants are made as aspirational goals we hope to fulfill; when we fall short, we make amends to be in right relations with each other. What if we were to extend that idea to the personal relationship to our faith? What does it mean to be a covenantal faith?
