Green Sanctuary

The church’s Environmental Action Committee was established in 2012 to initiate and maintain Green Sanctuary status with the Unitarian Universalist Association. The Green Sanctuary program was designed to develop the vision that together we can create a world in which all people share reverence, gratitude, and care for the living Earth, which is so essential to our lives. Adopting a Green Sanctuary Covenant was a critical step in the program. Our congregation voted unanimously to affirm this covenant on January 19, 2014.

As members of this congregation and participants in the Green Sanctuary program, we pledge our encouragement to one another in a personal and congregational commitment to our Unitarian Universalist Principles, including the Seventh Principle – respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

We commit to transforming our church into a beacon of environmental sustainability and justice, and educating and inspiring our members to lead more environmentally sustainable, just, and spirit-filled lives.
