This Chalice Is Lit for You

Four young adults, with their backs to the camera, wrap their arms around each other outdoors as bright sun shines around them.

Whether you are from the South, the East, the North, or the West…
Whether you were born into this faith, found it, or it found you…
Whether you feel at home or are still trying to find your place…
Whether you believe in God, are open to mystery, or still have no idea…
Whether you are unemployed, underemployed, cobbling things together, overworking, or in school…
Whether you are holding anxiety, grief, confusion, anger, hope, restlessness, or deep peace…
Unitarian Universalism has a place for you.
It is right here.
And this chalice is lit for you.

Tara wrote this chalice lighting for young adult worship/young adult gatherings.
