UNISON CHALICE LIGHTING
We light this chalice in gratitude
for our Unitarian Universalist heritage of hope and liberation.
We celebrate that our living tradition draws on many sources.
We give thanks for roots that can ground and steady us
and for the many sources that nurture us.
We lift up our gratitude to the mentors, role models, and teachers
who have guided us on our way.
May we see the Spirit of Life
moving through our stories and our lives.
