Broken Covenant A covenant is a promise about how we are going to be together.  It is a special practice that keeps our beloved UU tradition alive and transforming in the face of dogma.  This beautiful Unitarian Universalist belief uniquely offers an important concept of communtiy accuntability to the current questions we are facing across America around racial justice.  But we are not the only ones who have a long and beautiful history of co-existance.  Please join us for a program that highlights the similarities between our practice of covenanting and Prophet Mohamed's early Islamic thought...all in the context of post-Ferguson America.  Intro to Rose Rose Schwab is a new UU minister from St. Paul.  She has recently graduated from Union Theological Seminary in New York City, and worked for one year as the ministerial intern in St. Louis, MO during the Ferguson crisis.  She is now happily home again, and working as a chaplain at Fairview Riverside hospital while she enters "search" for a congregation.  *Note: Special permission was given by the mornings participants to include the comments and responses from members in the "question and answer" section of the video that followed Rose's morning message.
