Chalice Lighting: “New Light

Charles A. Howe

(May be read responsively)

We light this chalice to affirm that new light is ever waiting to break through to enlighten our ways:

That new truth is ever waiting to break through to illumine our minds:

And that new love is ever waiting to break through to warm our hearts.

May we be open to this light, and to the rich possibilities that it brings us.

(Adapted from a unison affirmation by Napoleon Lovely)
