In "Faith like a River," a Tapestry of Faith program
Light the chalice with these words by spiritualist and trance lecturer Cora L. V. Scott Hatch Daniels Tappan Richmond, 1897:
Have you ever seen the sun rise on the ocean? The first gray lines tremble on the horizon. Streaks of gold and crimson slowly rise. A gray cloud moves across the path and then it turns a crimson cloud, moving across the sky. On the verge of the horizon trembles the pale morning star, and then the full bright orb Phoebus, in his golden chariot, ascends, and a flood of light spreads over the Universe. Even thus will dawn the new age of humanity, and not only slavery, but fear, darkness and death will be conquered in the light of the new morning.
Remind volunteer readers to speak slowly and clearly so all can hear.
