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

As we light this chalice, we recollect

As we light this chalice, we recollect
the power enlightenment brings to the shadows of ignorance,
the hope compassion brings to the heaviness of oppression,
the warmth community brings to the loneliness of isolation.

May this chalice inspire us to embody in our own lives
enlightenment, compassion, and community,
that we may encourage all who would seek
to work together for the transformation
of our bruised and hurting world.
