Inviting Bell 

Musical Prelude  Zorba The Greek


Opening Words – “I say to talk every day about virtue and the other things about which you hear me talking and examining myself and others is the greatest good to man, and that the unexamined life is not worth living.  This is as I say, gentlemen, but it is not easy to convince you.”  Socrates (quoted by Plato)

Welcome and Announcements 

Chalice Lighting   We light this chalice as a symbol of our faith. May our many sparks meet and merge in communion of heart and soul. Deep calls unto deep, joy calls unto joy, light calls unto light. Let the kindling of this flame rekindle in us the inner light of love, of peace, of hope.

Closing Song –   Circle Round for Freedom


Closing Words -  “A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and in all things, who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all knowing and threrefor all of us need both love and charity.”  Eleanor Roosevelt 

Closing Fellowship Circle  

Extinguishing the ChaliceExtinguishing the Flame by Elizabeth Selle Jones

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.

Please join us for coffee and snacks in the Fellowship Hall after the service.

Please Check Doors Before Leaving

This is a friendly reminder to all congregants and friends who may be in our 9 Vance Road building alone or in groups. If you are the last one out, please, before leaving, check all exit doors, even ones you have not used, by physically pushing them out to ensure that the latch is engaged. Often, the doors appear to be closed but the latch has not been engaged.
