In "Resistance and Transformation," a Tapestry of Faith program
Invite a participant to light the chalice while you lead a unison reading of Reading 449 from Singing the Living Tradition: "We hallow this time together by kindling the lamp of our heritage."
Lead the group in singing the hymn you have chosen.
After the song, invite participants to silently recall times in their lives when they have been aware of their own power to discern their own religious understandings and to recall times when they did not believe themselves to have such power. Allow a few minutes for silent reflection, and then tell participants this workshop explores liberal religion's relationship to power and authority through the stories of the 1648 Cambridge Platform in New England and the 16th- and 17th-century Socinian movement in Poland.
