A UU December: Dec 2nd

Order of Service, December 3, 2017


*Hymn #361: Enter, Rejoice and Come In

Welcome & Announcements

Lighting the Chalice Flame (in unison):
Blessed is the fire that burns deep in the soul. It is the flame of the human spirit touched into being by the mystery of life. It is the fire of reason; the fire of compassion; the fire of community and commitment; the fire of justice; the fire of faith. It is the fire of love burning deep in the human heart; the divine glow in every life.

*Hymn #44: We Sing of Golden Mornings

Quiet Time/Meditation/ Prayer

New-Member Ceremony

Offertory: A Whiter Shade of Paleby Procol Harum

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.

Responsive Reading #531: The Oversoul

Sermon: Dialogue with Ralph Waldo Emerson
Rev. Paul Johnson

*Hymn #345: With Joy We Claim the Growing Light

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.
