Sisterhood Creed:

Keep us, O God, from pettiness; let us be large in thought, in word, in deed.
Let us be done with fault-finding, and leave off self-seeking. May we put away all pretense and meet each other face to face, without self-pity and without prejudice.
May we never be hasty in judgement and always generous. Let us take time for all things; make us to grow calm, serene, gentle.
Teach us to put into action our better impulses; straight-forward and unafraid.
Grant that we may realize it is the little things that create differences, that in the big things of life, we are as one.
And may we strive to touch and to know the great common human heart of us all.
Oh, Lord God, let us not forget to be kind, and may we always be mindful of Thee.

– Alda Lois Feferman
