Handout 1: Giving Life the Shape of Justice
UNISON CHALICE LIGHTING
We light this chalice for the Spirit of Life.
We light this chalice in affirmation of the goal of world community
with peace, liberty and justice for all.
We give thanks for the wisdom from the world's religions
which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual lives.
May our time together renew our spirits, deepen our community,
and inspire us to lead lives of justice and joy.
