Chalice Lighting: “In this small flame dwell

In this small flame dwell:
the beacon light of lanterns guiding travelers home;
the warmth of hearth fires tended through the generations;
the transforming energy of furnaces and the power and life of our sun.
May these blessings—
warmth and light and life-giving energy—
be kindled in each of us.
