Rev. Rob Eller-Isaacs, one of the founding partners of Unity Consulting, recently sent this message to our congregation, Unity Church-Unitarian, about the connection between covenant and governance. Good governance is not about efficiency, it's about depth. Good governance is a framework for covenant, for the promises to ourselves, to each other, and to the world for the impact we seek to make in the world. And in moments such as the ones we're facing now with the coronavirus pandemic, those promises are more important than ever.
For more about how governance can help us make and keep our promises to each other, and renew them when we sometimes break those promises check out:
