Chalice Lighting: Struggle and Joy

by 

Every day brings struggle, every day brings joy. Every day brings us the opportunity to ease the struggle of another, to be the joy in another’s life. May this flame remind us to carry our light to each other and to the world.

Chalice Lighting: Deep calls unto deep, joy calls unto joy, light calls unto light

by 

Deep calls unto deep, joy calls unto joy, light calls unto light. Let the kindling of this flame rekindle in us the inner light of love, of peace, of hope. And “as one flame lights another, nor grows the less,” we pledge ourselves to be bearers of the light, wherever we are.
