HANDOUT 1: Giving Life the Shape of Justice


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.


This workshop is grounded in the following Principles and Sources from the Purposes and Principles of the Unitarian Universalist Association:

Principles: The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all.... Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

Sources: ... Wisdom from the world's religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life.... Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves.
