Welcome & Announcements

Chalice Lighting

Chalice Reading (#448)
We gather this hour as people of faith
With joys and sorrows, gifts and needs.

We light this beacon of hope,
Sign of our quest for truth and meaning,
In celebration of the life we share together.

Tis a Gift to be Simple by Judy Collins

Opening Words (#434)

Unison Affirmation:
Love is the spirit of this church
And service its law.
This is our great covenant:
To dwell together in peace,
To seek the truth in love,
and to help one another.
