Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Spirit of Life: An Adult Program on Unitarian Universalist Spirituality

Handout 1: Move in the Hand

Part of Spirit of Life


We light this chalice in affirmation of each person and each day of life.

We gather to support each other in responding to the gift of life

and daily living with love for ourselves and for others.

We gather to explore our own experiences and learn from the experiences of others,

to draw on traditions and create new ways of seeking the sacred in the ordinary.

May our time together renew our spirits, deepen our community, and inspire us to lead lives of worth and dignity.

We light this chalice for the Spirit of Life.


This workshop is grounded in the following Principle and Sources from the Purposes and Principles of the Unitarian Universalist Association:

Principle: ... The inherent worth and dignity of every person.

Sources: Wisdom from the world's religions which inspire us in our ethical and spiritual life...

Spiritual teachings of Earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature
