The Candle Project
world, lighting candles is a sacred ritual. We light a candle for many purposes:
to illuminate darkness, dedicate prayers, solidify intentions, offer blessings,
evoke Spirit, and/or to nourish grateful living. For some Humanists
the candle is used as a symbol of the light of reason or rationality. Lighting a
candle is a long-held practice in many cultural, family and faith traditions.
The practice is common across international borders and societies. Lighting
candles can bring serenity, focus and comfort to participants.
Your Stewardship Committee is offering everyone an opportunity to light candles
of hope, remembrance, or to honor causes close to your heart. Lit candles will
be on the altar for each Sunday service from November 26 through January
14. Each person or cause honored along with the donorís name will be displayed
on a list at the back of the church. The list will be updated on a weekly
basis. Suggested donation is $20 per candle. Forms to purchase your candles are
attached and will be also be handed out with the Order of Service this Sunday,
November 5. There will be a box placed on the organ in the front of the church
where you may deposit the completed forms along with payment or you can hand
your form to Bonnie Overholtzer or Susan Swope. If you are unable to make it to
church you can mail the completed form to UUG to the attention of Bonnie
Overholtzer. For any questions, please contact Susan Swope or Bonnie
