Sermon: “To Promise and Bind” 

What role do promises have in our relationships to other people and in our own lives?  How does stating our promises to each other in written or verbal ways transform us personally and collectively? Drawing on the long legacy and broad use of covenants in our religious tradition, the service explores why covenants, and promise-making, are a vital part of spiritual and ethical growth as never perfect people.
