Chalice Lighting Readings
The International Council of Unitarians and Universalists's archive of monthly Global Chalice Lighting Readings is an excellent resource for Torda450 Worship Services. Additional suggestions are below:
- From Rev. Sara Ascher
- May the light from this flame be a beacon of our faith, in the days that grow dark and dreary. May the light from this flame be warmth to our spirits, during nights of restless searching. May the light from this flame be a celebration of the truth, meaning and joy we find within these walls and in our dreams.
- The light that we now kindle is a reminder of those who gave their lives for the freedom we cherish. May we never allow the light to falter, not in our chalice, nor in our hearts.
- From Rev. Eric Cherry

- Our different paths come together in this Holy place. Graced by the history of our free religious heritage. Let us be mindful of the forces deep within which call us to become more than we are. May this hour bring rest and renewal, comfort and challenge. May we be reminded here of our highest aspirations, and inspired to bring our gifts of love and service to the altar of humanity. May we know once again that we are not isolated beings, but that we are connected – in mystery and in wonder to each other, to this community and to the universe.
