Chalice Lighting: “Let There Be Light”
Let there be
The light of joy, the light of happiness, and the light of contentment
May it illuminate our paths and fill our lives with peace
And let there be dark
For it is from our dark places that we are brought forward
Tried and tested
And impelled toward growth
It is in these places that we realize compassion and learn to love
And there was
day and there was night.
And there was joy and there was sorrow.
And it was good.
