Miracles

Chalice Lighting

We kindle our light in the centre of our circle.
May it symbolize the light and life and warmth
in the center of our beings.
May it mirror the light of fellow Unitarians here
And around the world.

-Patricia Oliver

Global Chalice Lighting reading for April 2012 from the Unitarian Church of South Africa

Friend, I have lost the way.
The way leads on.
Is there another way?
The way is one.
I must retrace the track.
It’s lost and gone.
Back, I must travel back!
None goes there, none.
Then I’ll make here my place,
(The road leads on),
Stand still and set my face,
(The road leaps on),
Stay here, for ever stay.
None stays here, none.
I cannot find the way.
The way leads on.
Oh places I have passed!
That journey’s done.
And what will come at last?
The road leads on.

Closing Meditation

May the blessing of Light be on you
Light without and light within,
May the blessed sunlight shine on you
And warm your heart till it glows like
A great peat fire

One thought on “Sunday 15 Apr 2012

  1. About Miracles: I have a little piece of jewelry I fabricated sometime during the past few months. It was inspired by Jesus Malverde, a patron “saint” of the poor of Sonora, Mexico and currently patron saint of drug dealers. Jesus was a real person, a sort of Robin Hood, who lived around 1910 and was shot and killed by the local sheriff. Jesus’ first miracle was finding and returning two cows that had strayed. I guess you find your miracles where you look for them. : ) Nancy Toothman
