Description of Activity

Invite participants, if they wish, to share a few words or a sentence from their journals.

Invite everyone to join in reading the closing words, by T.S. Eliot, Reading 685 in Singing the Living Tradition. Invite a participant to come forward and extinguish the chalice as you say these words: "As we extinguish this chalice, may we let the light of our tradition kindle our hope for a better world."

Distribute Taking It Home and invite participants to continue to write in their journals between workshops.
