Behold... the mighty Chalice!
This is our Family Chalice that I just picked up today at Ruthies shop. We made it a while back and Ruthie put the finishing touches on it for us. It has four little totems on it, each one representing each one of us.
Alex: G clef
Sage: "Popular Trading Card Characture, with some name like "Ichachew" or "Trehobazole"... either way, it requires a lengthy conversation about how it "evolved" and what kind of "damage" it can do."
What is a Chalice you ask? Well, before I go into talking about our Unitarian Universalist "religion" (and only other UU's may understand why I chose to put that into quotations) I just want to say that it doesn't really matter who you are and what you believe... as long as it's right for you and what you are doing is not causing physical or mental harm to you or anyone else.
And now... go read about what a Chalice is... educate yourself.
My family will be lighting our new family chalice tonight for the first time with the following:
Let this flame be to us a symbol of the wholeness we seek,
its brightness dispelling gloom, lighting a path to faith and hope,
Its glow reminding us of the sacred bonds which link us to all people,
its radiance calling us to cast the light of freedom, justice and peace upon all the world.
