Fumbling in the Dark

Thoughts about when accepting each other gets in the way of spiritual growth.

Prelude           Lo How a Rose E’er Blooming         Kate Gridley, Janie Wulff

Chalice Lighting            As the Cold Wind Bites by Ben Soule

(adapt. Rev. Barnaby Feder)

As the wild wind bites, this flame warms us.
As the crackling cold air stops our breath,

this radiant flame draws from us
Words we need to give and to receive:
Words of greeting, words of comfort, words of solace,
Words to challenge our minds and words to bring us to action.

(Unison) Let us gaze upon this our common flame,
so that we remember who we are and what we can do
when we are together.
