Chalice Lighting for the Work of the Congregation

Holding a small lit candle, a UU named Carol lights a large chalice flame

As we approach our agenda
let us remember that we are doing the work of the congregation.*
When we do the work of this congregation*, we touch lives.
When we touch lives, we change the world.
May this chalice flame we now kindle
remind us throughout our meeting
of our ministry and our mission.
