This short essay, originally a sermon, is included in this section because it draws so heavily on the concept of covenant and its influence upon Unitarian Universalists as a continuing part of the heritage. Students may wish to refer back to this essay in dealing with later periods.

Has covenant really had continuing significance in Unitarian development or is it more of an historic “shard” that we honor in word but really has little concrete meaning?

Take some Unitarian church as an example and see if the word covenant can be applied to its membership. If so, how?
