Handout 1: Spirit of Life
UNISON CHALICE LIGHTING
Our Unitarian Universalist congregations covenant to affirm and promote
a free and responsible search for truth and meaning.
We gather to support each other on this spiritual journey.
The Living Tradition we share draws from many sources
including direct experience of transcending mystery and wonder.
We gather to explore our own experiences
and listen to the experiences of others.
May our time together renew us
and open us to the forces that create and uphold life.
We light this chalice for the Spirit of Life.
