Description of Activity

Gather participants around the chalice

You may say:

Now we will light the chalice, the symbol of our Unitarian Universalist faith; then say together our opening words.

Light the chalice and invite the children to repeat each line:

We are Unitarian Universalists.

With minds that think,

Hearts that love,

And hands that are ready to serve.

Together we care for our Earth.

And work for friendship and peace in our world.

Extinguish the chalice.
