Who We Are Called to Be

UU Church of Rockford IL stained glass chalice

Our chalice is a reminder
that in hard times,
our ancestors in faith
acted with courage
to bring hope and safety,
to bring life itself
to threatened people.
We light it today (or tonight, etc.)
as a reminder of who
we are called to be
in a world still dangerous
and despairing. 
With courage,
and faith,
We bring ourselves
to the work before us.
