Hymn #188 Come, Come Whoever You Are


Opening Words
 Lighting the Chalice Flame    
Birth is a miracle of love and courage, bringing light into the world;
Death is a loss of light, but no less an act of courage,
For we are born from — and return to — mystery.

Hymn #18 What Wondrous Love

Quiet Time/Meditation/Prayer


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.

Sermon: The Right to Die with Dignity, Compassion and Peace  Bill Schoolman

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