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

Handout 1: Wings Set Me Free

Part of Spirit of Life


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.


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.
