Celestial Lands The Religious Crossroads of Politics, Power, and Theology

We Light our Chalice of Freedom — Judith Crompton

We light our chalice of freedom, our Unitarian symbol,
In the spirit of faith, hope and love.
As we do so, we reflect for a moment,
In this place of simple beauty,
On the meaning of these three things in our lives.
And we think of those not here,
Blessed in the knowledge
That the fond spirits of those whom we love well can never leave us,
But stay in our hearts forever.

(Silence)

And now come into this circle,
This fellowship of holiness and health.
Come and you shall know peace and joy.

—Judith Crompton
from the ICUU and the British General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches
