Allying Against Oppression


Chalice Lighting

We light this flame today
A point of light to help us see one another true
To allow us to be there for when we are needed
In this place, let us stand up for one another
Let us strengthen one another
Let us shelter one another
Let us use our own strength to change hearts and minds
So that all may be safe and strong and proud
And none need protecting from harm

Closing Words

We are not here for ourselves alone
We are strengthened by each other
Challenged by each other
Comforted by one another
Let us stand up for one another
So that none must stand alone
