The Purpose of the Traveling Chalice Program is to deepen our understanding of one of our most familiar Unitarian Universalist symbols. The light of the Chalice connects us all together and is a sacred element of our beloved community. The Chalice may also be used as a symbol of hope when one is feeling or experiencing a sense of darkness. We will learn about its history and how it brings people together through learning and love.
How the Program Works
Each week a family/household (not just those with children) will take home the Traveling Chalice, which will be inside a special Chalice Carrier. On Sundays, a sign-up sheet will be in Kreves Hall on the buffet cabinet near the video kiosk and online.
You may want to use the Chalice during your meals, family meetings, or as a bedtime ritual. Choose a reading from the materials provided or make your own.
Take a photo of the chalice and post it on the DUUC Coffee Hour Facebook page or send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
(is the Chalice on your dining room table, mantle, next to a bedside table?)
Record your experience in the included journal.
- How did the chalice enrich your experience?
- In what ways was the chalice used?
- Tell us who you are and when you had the chalice.
- if you created your own reading, you may share it in the journal.
Bring the Chalice Carrier and all its contents back to church the following week so that the next family/household may use it.
