March 2015

ICUU announces the 139th in its monthly global chalice lighting readings. Congregations worldwide are invited to use the reading for at least one worship service in the designated month, identifying it as the “ICUU Global Chalice Lighting” for that month. This Global Chalice Lighting was originally submitted by the Unitarian Universalist Association (USA) and is for use in March 2015.

 

ENGLISH:
The light of life shines through the eyes of each and every person.

The light of truth shines through each life.

May the light of this chalice remind us that our search for truth and light is ongoing,
and is enhanced and nurtured by every person we meet.

May we honor the light in each other.

CHINESE:

生命的光從每個人的眼裡散發出來。

真理的光從每個人的生活中展現出來。

願這聖徽的光,提醒我們:追求真理是永不停息的,可以經由我們生活中接觸的每個人來發揚光大。

讓我們標榜每一個生命的光彩。

FRENCH:

La lumière de la vie brille dans les yeux de chaque personne.

La lumière de la vérité brille à travers chaque vie.

Puisse la lumière de ce calice nous rappeler que notre recherche de la vérité et de la lumière est en cours,

Et qu’elle se trouve renforcée et nourrie par chaque personne que nous rencontrons.

Puissions-nous honorer la lumière dans l'autre.

GERMAN:

Das Licht des Lebens leuchtet durch die Augen eines jeden.

Das Licht der Wahrheit scheint durch alles Lebendige hindurch.

Möge das Licht dieses Leuchters uns daran erinnern,

dass unsere Suche nach Wahrheit und Licht nicht endet

und durch jede Person, die uns begegnet,

unterstützt und verstärkt wird.

Wir wollen das Licht in jedem von uns achten.

SPANISH:

La luz de la vida brilla a través de los ojos de cada persona.
La luz de la verdad brilla a través de cada vida.
Que la luz de este cáliz nos recuerde que nuestra búsqueda de la verdad y la luz
es continua y que se mejora y nutre con cada persona que encontramos.
Honremos la luz que hay en cada uno de nosotros.
