As we light our chalice, we affirm…
The unity of all life and our interdependence
with the rest of creation.
The uniqueness and equal dignity
of every person.
The power of unconditional love
to transform lives.
The importance of constantly seeking truth and wisdom.
The divine ground of our being
that connects us with each other and the infinite
and which replenishes and heals us.
