What is your suggestion or idea?

JUSTICE. Small letters in ““beloved community.””

Place ““We covenant . . .”” sentence at end.

What is the reason for your amendment idea?

The term, ““Beloved Community,”” the history of its use, is not known to most UUs.
Best to make it stand on its own.

““We Covenant. . .”” sentence should be at the end for parallel construction for each of the 6 values. Adds effective communication and power to the language. (would make a fine Responsive Reading if done)

Have you discussed this idea with your congregation or other UUs?

No. These are stylistic suggestions.
