Winter Solstice Chalice Lighting

Winter Solstice Chalice Lighting

Ariel Hunt-Brondwin

Reader 1: Flaming chalice, symbol of our living tradition, we kindle you for light

Reader 2: Light in this darkest season of the year
Light to reveal the sources of greed and hate among us
Light to guide our way forward together

Reader 1: Chalice Flame, we kindle you for love

Reader 2: Love to keep our hands and hearts warm in the wintry cold
Love to comfort us as our hearts break for the pain of the world
Love to bring us into community so we may grow stronger together

Reader 1: Chalice Flame, we kindle you for hope

Reader 2: Hope that the sun will shine again
Hope that one day soon peace will prevail
Hope that we may build the beloved community together

Both: For light, love, and hope we kindle our flame this night
