Hymn #188 Come, Come, Whoever You Are

Welcome & Announcements

Prelude: Guitar Solo
Opening Words
Lighting the Chalice Flame (in unison):
We light our flaming chalice to illuminate the world we seek. In the search for truth, may we be just; In the search for justice, may we be loving; And, in loving, may we find peace.

*Hymn: # 298 Wake, Now, My Senses

Candles of Joy and Sorrow and Meditation  


Offertory:  Tupelo Honey by Van Morrison

Affirmation (in unison) Love is the spirit of this congregation and service is its law. This is our great covenant: to dwell together in peace, to seek the truth in love and to help one another.

*Hymn: # 123 Spirit of Life
Sermon:   Extinguishing the Chalice Flame
                     Richard Keelan

*Hymn: # 100 I’ve Got Peace Like a River

Extinguishing the Chalice Flame (in unison) We extinguish this flame, but not the light of truth, the warmth of community, or the fire of commitment. These we carry in our hearts until we are together again.
