UNISON CHALICE LIGHTING
We light this chalice in celebration
of our Unitarian Universalist affirmation
of ongoing learning and new understanding.
Each of us individually and all of us collectively
have gifts and talents to use in the service of life.
Though we all know setbacks and failures,
strength, power, and possibilities always lie before us.
We light this chalice for the Spirit of Life
continuing to move through our lives.
PRINCIPLE AND SOURCE
This workshop is grounded in the following Principle and Source from the Purposes and Principles of the Unitarian Universalist Association:
... a free and responsible search for truth and meaning.
Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit.
From Our Statement of Principles and Sources
Grateful for the religious pluralism which enriches and ennobles our faith, we are inspired to deepen our understanding and expand our vision.
