Description of Activity
Distribute Taking It Home. Announce the date, time, and place of the next workshop and any other "housekeeping" information. Request or remind volunteers if you want participants to read material aloud or perform other roles at the next meeting.
Invite participants to gather around the chalice, and read these words from the 1960 worship service celebrating the consolidation of the AUA and UCA:
We declare our allegiance to the (new) Unitarian Universalist Association, and pledge our lives, our fortunes, and our faith to its highest purposes and sure upbuilding.
Extinguish the chalice.
