We light our chalice for the inherent worth and dignity of every person.
  Unitarian Universalists create communities of compassion and welcoming.    You do not have to do anything to earn the love contained within these walls.    You do not have to be braver, smarter, stronger, better than you are in this moment    To belong here, with us.  Erika Hewitt, adapted
