We light our chalice for acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations.
Come into this circle of community. Come into this sacred space. Bring your whole self! Bring the joy that makes your heart sing. Bring your kindness and compassion. Bring also your sadness and your disappointments. May we know the joy of being together. Andrew Pakula, adapted
