Hymn #188 – “Come, Come, Whoever You Are” (sing 3 times)
Come, come, whoever you are, wanderer,
worshiper, lover of leaving. Ours is no caravan
of despair. Come, yet again come.
Welcome and Greeting
We come to this time and this place:
“To rediscover the wondrous gift of free religious community.”
To renew our faith in the holiness, goodness, and beauty of life.
“To rekindle the flame of memory and hope.”
To reclaim the vision of an earth made fair, with all her people.
Chalice Lighting (spoken in unison)
“Life is a gift for which we are grateful.
We gather in community to celebrate
The glories and the mysteries of this great gift.”
~ Marjorie Montgomery

through every land, by every tongue. Amen
Lighting of the Peace Candle
Please remain silent following the meditation.
Invitation to Silence and Meditation
You are invited to light a candle of memory and hope at this time.
Extinguishing the Chalice (in unison)
“We extinguish this flame but not the light of truth,
the warmth of community, nor the fire of commitment.
These we carry in our hearts until we are together again.”
~Elizabeth Selle Jones
