In "Families," a Tapestry of Faith program
Gather participants together in a circle. Ask participants if anyone would like to light the chalice or offer words—either their own or the prayer below. If no one volunteers, lead with this prayer.
O creative flame,
Quicken our spirits when we fear,
And warm us where pain resides,
As we celebrate the new and the eternal,
Chalice of our faith,
Challenging and healing.
Rev. Adele Smith-Penniman
Introduce the new session. You may wish to ask participants what they remember from last week, as a means of sharing the summary of what happened last time. Tell participants that today you will focus on images and realities of families.
