Embodied Hope

What if we could express our hopes for a sustainable relationship with Earth in how we decorate some holiday wreaths? Rev. Barnaby thinks we can so we gave it a try in our Sanctuary. We collected for Charter House Coalition. Watch a recording of the service here.

Chalice Lighting

We light this chalice

This beacon of hope

This shining flame

And it reminds us

That science is all around us

That the earth is all around us

That we are one. (By Scott May)
