Always forgive your enemies – nothing annoys them so much. – Oscar Wilde
Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it. – Mark Twain
For each day of Chalica we will offer activities, some are fun and some are more reflecting, a chalice lighting, and a meditation. Gather everyone together, light the chalice, and breathe into the principles with us each day.
Chalice Lighting: (If you don’t have a chalice at home, remember that the point of a chalice is that it is a symbol so any candle will work.)
Love can transform the world By Maureen Killoran
Love is the aspiration, the spirit that moves and inspires this faith we share.
Rightly understood, love can nurture our spirits and transform the world.
May the flame of this chalice honor and embody the power and the blessing of the love we need, the love we give, the love we are challenged always to remember and to share.
Our Meditation today is about Love. Focusing on love helps us to remember that each person is important.
Here is a musical meditation as well. “Perfect” by P!nk is about knowing that you have worth and others have worth. Enjoy.
Eva Moses Kor and her twin sister Miriam were held in Auschwitz and experimented on by Dr. Mengele. Listen to her powerful story.
May you find the strength to forgive so that you may find peace and freedom.
RE (Religious Education) will be at 10 am. Adults will continue Building your Theology and Children will focus on Relationships in What do you Stand for?
During our service this week, we will focus on forgiveness and reconciliation. It has been said that forgiveness does not mean reconciliation and this is true. Our service will focus on the forgiving capabilities of our hearts and the act of reconciliation. Our service leader will be Cricket Hall.
Have a good week. Hope to see you on Sunday.
“We must embrace the jagged edges, embrace the broken pieces. Forgive and be forgiven. This is the path to wholeness. We must hold each other and all beings tenderly, for we are one.”
