  • Proposed 8th Principle language: We value the cultural diversity, communication, and cooperation of all social groups; we hope to extinguish misconceptions, stereotypes, discrimination, and other oppressions in ourselves and in our institutions.
  • National proposal: “We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote: journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.”
  • Re-write by ChatGPT: As member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, we covenant to promote a journey towards spiritual wholeness.
