Activity time: 5 minutes
Light the chalice and offer these words adapted from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry:
In a house which becomes a home,
one hands down and another takes up
the heritage of mind and heart,
laughter and tears, musings and deeds.
Love like a carefully loaded ship,
crosses the gulf between the generations.
We light this chalice for the children who come after us.
Lead the group in singing "This Little Light of Mine," Hymn 118 in Singing the Living Tradition.
