In "Faith like a River," a Tapestry of Faith program
Light the chalice with these words by Transylvanian Unitarian Bishop Janos Erdo (1913-1996), published by the International Council of Unitarian Universalists (ICUU) in July 2007. These words are an English translation from the original Hungarian:
Every time we light a candle, we remember the past. Whoever forgets the past must live through it again. But those who remember the past find in it directions for the present and the future, and can revive tradition in all its richness. It is the duty of each generation to study history, so that in the light of the past it may see clearly what is its own special task. It is our duty too, on this special occasion.
Remind volunteer readers to speak slowly and clearly so all can hear.
