Description of Activity

Gather the group around the chalice. If needed, relight the chalice.

Revisit questions generated in the Opening. Lift up answers that have emerged during this workshop. Note questions that remain unanswered and tell the group what you will do to find answers before the next meeting.

Distribute Taking It Home. Invite participants to sit in a circle and join hands and say together:

All our bridges meet in the middle, in a Unitarian Universalist circle of faith. We are connected with all that lives. We continue with all who seek. We belong with all who love. Go in peace until we meet again.

Extinguish the chalice together.
