The Oil in the Chalice
The light of our chalice would soon flicker and die without the oil that nourishes its flame.
And just as this flame cannot burn without oil, this religious community cannot survive or thrive without the financial, as well as personal, support of its members and friends—the oil that keeps the flame of our liberal religious faith alive and fuels the shared mission and ministry of this Fellowship.
Let us now give, freely and generously, an offering to sustain and strengthen our shared religious community—a community of memory, hope, faith, and love. For we are now the keepers of its flame that burns for justice, its dream of beloved community, its vision of a world made whole.
