GLOBAL CHALICE LIGHTING WORDS SOUGHT
ICUU is seeking chalice lighting words to be considered for publication in the GLOBAL CHALICE LIGHTING WORDS series.
Submissions should be original or adapted words designed for use when lighting a chalice in the context of worship.
The author must be a member of an ICUU Member Group or of an Emerging Group recognized by ICUU.
Submission in a local language in addition to English is welcomed, particularly when English is not the native language.
Please note it is not possible to promise that submitted words can be used in a particular month or that any submission will be included in the series. A number of factors are considered when considered which words will be selected and when they will be used.
Submissions can be sent to ICUU GLOBAL CHALICE LIGHTING WORDS Coordinator Steve Dick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to receiving GLOBAL CHALICE LIGHTING WORDS from around the world and thank you for your assistance.
ICUU wants to be responsive to the need for material about the Unitarian and Universalist religion in many languages. To begin, we can direct you to these existing sites:

Global Chalice Lighting for September 2015
The International Council ofUnitarians and Universalists announces the 145th in its monthly series of global chalice lighting readings. Congregations worldwide are invited to participate.
All ICUU-affiliated groups have been asked to submit brief chalice lightings for the project. Every month, a reading will be distributed to Unitarian and Universalist congregations around the world. We ask each congregation to use the reading for at least one worship service in the designated month, identifying it as the “Global Chalice Lighting” for that month and naming the group which submitted it. Readings will be circulated in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese and, where different, in their original language.
It is hoped that the ICUU Global Chalice Lighting Project will enhance the worship experience in our congregations and raise awareness of the international dimensions of our religious movement.
This Global Chalice Lighting is to be used during September 2015.
(With many thanks to our volunteer translators: Adam Hargrove (Chinese), Nathalie Brunet (French), Freya Bednarski-Stelling (German), Paola Ferarri (Italian) and Jaume de Marcos (Spanish).)
