Holley Ulbrich. The word covenant has long been bandied about in UU circles, but it's gaining more traction lately. Congregations, boards, committees, and other groups are setting some boundaries about how we behave and how we relate.  We have a long history of individualism in Unitarian Universalism that can make it difficult to work together to create and sustain healthy congregational communities.  When there is conflict, how do we restrain the urge to pick up our marbles and go home?  How do we balance respect for the individual with shared responsibility to and for each other and for the whole?
