We gather this evening* in a sacred space,
Kindling a fire that burns here in our chalice and in our hearts.
We gather to engage in a different kind of worship,
One that doesn’t include sermons or hymns but is holy nonetheless.
We gather to honor our covenant and engage in congregational life,
Doing the necessary work to ensure that this community thrives.
We gather together, as a people of faith, guided by love,
A love that burns as bright as the flame in our chalice.
We light this chalice, as we have done so many times before,
For the warmth of love,
The light of truth,
And the energy of action.
*This can be adjusted to whatever time best suits your needs.
