Chalice Lighting: “In This Time of Loss

Also appropriate as Funerals / Memorials

In this time of loss
In this time of asking why
We light a flame of sharing
We light a flame of commitment.

In this time of why
We light this flame  
Sign of our searching
Sign of our sharing
Sign that together we remember
Together we ask why
Together in sadness and joy
We share light.

Together we celebrate
What we are together.
