The Candle Project

Throughout the 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 Overholtzer.
