the 117th in its monthly series of global chalice lighting readings.
Congregations worldwide are invited to participate.
We invite each congregation to use the reading
for at least one worship service
in the designated month, identifying it as
the “Global Chalice Lighting” for that month and
naming the group which submitted it.
This Global Chalice Lighting is submitted
by the Canadian Unitarian Council for May 2013.
ENGLISH: The World
May the world that is one in its life, a rich blue top spinning in the endless night of space, a world that is one in its interdependence and fragility, be one in our hearts and minds and deeds also. – Charles Eddis
auch spürbar eine Einheit sein in unseren Herzen, unserem Sinn und unserem Tun.
