Opening (5 minutes), Workshop 3: Our Families

In "Families," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Chalice and matches

Description of Activity

Gather participants in a circle. Invite volunteers to light the chalice and offer the words provided below or their own. If no one volunteers, lead the chalice lighting yourself.

At times our own light goes out

And is rekindled by a spark from another person.

Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude

Of those who have lighted the flame

Within us.

- Albert Schweitzer
