Chalice Lighting: “Community Chalice Lighting

We call this light before us in hope that we may always remain a strong community,
working together to make the world a better place.

When we are grieving or sad,
When we are challenged,
When we need help,
This flame guides us out of the darkness.

When we are cheerful,
When we celebrate,
When we accomplish a great task,
When we return to a place that makes us happy,
The chalice reminds us to share our happiness with others.
