Covenant – Rev. Mark Skrabacz
Love is the doctrine of this church,
The quest of truth is its sacrament
And service is its prayer.
To dwell together in peace,
To seek knowledge in freedom,
To serve humanity in fellowship,
Thus do we covenant with each other.
To the end that all souls shall grow
into harmony with the divine,
El amor es la doctrina de esta iglesia,
Su sacramento es la búsqueda de la verdad
Y su oración es el servicio.
Convivir en paz,
buscar sabiduría en libertad,
Dar a la humanidad nuestro servicio fraternal,
Para que todas las almas crezcan
en armonía con la divinidad
Así pactamos el uno con el otro.

Que el amor que sientes en este momento, Te guíe y te llene de placer.
