In "Faith like a River," a Tapestry of Faith program
Light the chalice with these words of the Rev. Jay F. Abernathy, Jr., used with permission:
This is the flame of freedom.
The hope that glows through all darkness.
The light of truth.
It is our flame — the symbol that unites us with one another and with the heritage passed down the centuries — it is our flame.
A simple candle, humble light.
Known the world over and throughout the ages.
Kept aflame in the hearts and minds — the souls — of countless brothers and sisters in the human family.
It is our flame, it is their flame;
We shall continue to light it —
A free congregation of truth and hope.
Remind volunteer readers to speak slowly and clearly so all can hear.
