Chalice Lighting for an Ordination

Chalice Lighting for an Ordination

Christian Schmidt

• It takes a spark.
• It takes fuel.
• It takes air.
• And it takes a container to hold them all.

It is only with all of these things that we make fire.

• It takes a call.
• It takes learning and experience
• It takes love.
• And it takes a community to hold them all.

It is only with all of these things that we make a minister.

Today we light our flaming chalice, and today we ordain [name] to the Unitarian Universalist ministry.
