Chop Wood, Carry Water

*Call to Worship
*Time of Greeting
*Chalice Lighting

Our Unitarian Universalist churches are dedicated to the proposition that beyond all our differences, and beneath all our diversity, there is a unity which makes us one, and which binds us together. We light this chalice in witness to this unity.

*Affirmation of Faith

Love is the spirit of this church,
And service its law.
This is our great covenant:
To dwell together in peace,
To seek truth in love,
And to help one another.

*Opening Song: Meditation on Breathing (Sarah Dan Jones)

When I breathe in,
I breathe in peace.
When I breathe out,
I breathe out love.

*Message for All Ages

*Pastoral Prayer

*Spirit of Life (Carolyn McDade)

Spirit of Life
Come unto me
Sing in my heart
All the stirrings of compassion
Blow in the wind
Rise in the sea
Move in the hand
Giving life the shape of justice
Roots hold me close
Wings set me free
Spirit of Life
Come to me
Come to me

*Moment of Silence

*Sermon: Chop Wood, Carry Water

*Offering –

*Closing Song: Now I Walk in Beauty (from the Navajo Blessing Way)

Now I walk in beauty
Beauty is before me
Beauty is behind me
Above and below me

*Extinguishing the Chalice

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. –Elizabeth Selle Jones
