Description of Activity
Gather the group around the chalice. If needed, relight the chalice.
Distribute Taking It Home. Invite participants to sit in a circle and join hands and say together:
All our bridges meet in the middle, in a Unitarian Universalist circle of faith. We are connected with all that lives. We continue with all that seek. We belong with all who love. Go in peace until we meet again.
Extinguish the chalice together.
