UUCE Covenant of Right Relations
“We covenant to build a religious community guided by respect and sustained by our principles. We will listen appreciatively, speak with care, express gratitude, honor our differences, and assume good intentions. We will communicate directly, honestly and compassionately – particularly when we are in conflict. When we hurt one another we will ask for forgiveness and make amends, and when we are hurt we will try to forgive and reconnect in a spirit of right relationship. In celebration of the common mission that unites us, we will abide by this covenant.”
History of UUCE
We are a strong community of spiritual seekers, ethical humanists, and believers in social justice. Our members identify with and draw inspiration from Christianity, Humanism, Paganism, Judaism and other religious and philosophical traditions.
We were chartered as Unitarian in 1909. Even further back, we were present as Universalists in Eugene between the 1850’s and 1896. Members began meeting in local homes and hotels, but, as the church flourished, we moved from various buildings and then finally settled at Donald and 40th which was our church home until 2011. Growing beyond our space, we spent over 600 days remodeling our building at 13th and Chambers, doing the majority of work ourselves. We even won awards for demolishing, recycling, and building with “green” in mind.
