In "Love Connects Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Punch a hole through the paper cups or plates and slip the tapered candles through. Encourage participants to make signs to show what the peace vigil is about. At the designated time, light the tapers and ask the speakers to present their words or their poems. Then, lead some songs about peace such as Hymn 95, "There is More Love Somewhere" and Hymn 100, "I've Got Peace Like a River" in Singing the Living Tradition. You might create a display of the lit candles and the signs (make sure candles will be monitored throughout the vigil). End the vigil by blowing out the candles.
After the peace vigil, invite group reflection with questions such as:
Have an extinguisher handy as well as a first aid kit whenever you are using an open flame.
