Description of Activity

Distribute Taking It Home. Invite participants to gather around the chalice. Read these words attributed to John Murray:

Go out into the highways and by-ways. Give the people something of your new vision. You may possess a small light, but uncover it, let it shine, use it in order to bring more light and understanding to the hearts and minds of men and women. Give them not hell, but hope and courage; preach the kindness and everlasting love of God.

Extinguish the chalice.
