Chalica Week 4: A Free and Responsible Search for Truth and Meaning

Let us fight to free the world! To do away with national barriers! To do away with greed, with hate and intolerance! Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness… In the name of democracy, let us all unite!  

– Charlie Chaplin

Week 4 Chalica Reflection from Rev. Randy Partain

Chalice Lighting

Our chalice is a lamp, lighting dark corners of ignorance; illuminating falsehoods.

We hold this sacred lamp, applying knowledge with care and abiding purpose.
