From the Worship Committee
We invite you to sign up on the sheet posted in the vestry to light the chalice at the beginning of a morning service. Before lighting the chalice, the chalice lighter shares a 2-3 minute reflection such as a poem, a reading or a personal meditation or story that bears witness to his or her individual Unitarian Universalist values and/or faith. A chalice lighting should offer an invitation to worship and a way to draw everyone together with a common focal point, with words of hope, welcome, and inspiration, or, if addressing a difficult topic, with truth spoken in love. If you need inspiration or help, Rev. Ellen has many resources for readings and chalice lightings. We on the Worship Committee thank you for participating in this important ritual in our congregation!
