That Which Abides

Through the week this chalice abides, cupped and silent,
Softly it gleams in a dimly lit room, complete unto itself.
Today, we come together as a community of faith, joyful and free,
Our individual energies combine to spark the flame of Truth.
May we each draw strength for the other, and, like the chalice,
May we be bathed in the fire of commitment
To social justice, equity, and peace.
