In "Principled Commitment," a Tapestry of Faith program
Gather participants around the chalice. Light the chalice (if it is not still lit) and a tea candle, and express gratitude for the group and what has been learned.
Invite each participant to light a candle and share something she/he has learned or would like to say to the group.
Invite everyone to sing a familiar song or hymn. Distribute songbooks or post the lyrics.
As you extinguish the chalice, read the following closing words:
May our efforts here fuel the fires of connection in this world. May our individual efforts take us one step closer to creating a world of inherent worth and dignity for every person, beginning right here with our partners. Blessed be; may it be so; amen.
