Description of Activity

Light the chalice and share these words:

We light this chalice as a beacon of the free church tradition,

a tradition that lives on in us,

a tradition that calls us together by covenant,

by mutual promise to walk together in the ways of faith.

May ours be a community of love that calls us ever to peace, hope, justice.
