Chalice Lighting: “Many of the past generation and many of today...

Many of the past generation and many of today have found three abiding values in prayer: the quiet meditation on life,
the reaching out toward the universal and the infinite,
and the courageous facing of one's profoundest wishes.
Let parents sense and share with their children the glory and mystery of everyday things.
Let them look with sympathy upon humanity's age-long dilemmas.
Let no questions be taboo.
The next generation can ill afford to have the deeper values deleted from the book of life.
