Order of Service, January 7, 2018


Lighting the Chalice Flame: Elizabeth Shine (in unison) 
Fire consumes, and casts a bright light. May our chalice flame consume our regrets for the past, our fears about our future, and our worries about today. May it light for us a path of joy and peace.

Prelude Blood Brothers by Ingres Michaelson

Opening Words: Principle 1- Chris Juhl
The inherent worth and dignity of every person

Meditation and Candle Lighting

Principle 2- Pat Knight
Justice, equity and compassion in human relations

Principle 3 – Amy Stauber
Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations

*Hymn #203: All Creatures of the Earth and Sky

Offertory: Improv on a well-known hymn by Bruce Holden

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.

Principle 4 - Jesse Walters 
A free and responsible search for truth and meaning

Principle 5 - Nickie Albert
The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large

*Hymn #128:  For All That Is Our Life

Principle 6 - Barbara Hatzfeld
The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all

Principle 7 - David Traupman
Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part

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.

Closing Words 

PostludeFor Good from Wicked

* Please stand in body or spirit
Hearing devices, and envelopes for cash pledges are available on the hymnal cart or ask an usher.
