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. Read these words of Dillman Baker Sorrells:
May we go forth remembering those who shaped our lives and hoping that we may honor them well. May our coming together enrich our lives.
Extinguish the chalice.
