Lengthening summer light does not lift the shadows that have fallen on humanity the world over.
We re-light our chalice flame to re-ignite a spirit of radical optimism,
Knowing it takes us all living what matters, to dispel those who would divide us.
All manner of things will be well, if we make them well.
May our chalice communities embody the right relationships our world so desperately needs.
