From The ICUU President 1 May 2013
In recognition of the changing nature of their work and the increased responsibilities our staff have assumed, the Rev. Steve Dick has been appointed as ICUU's first Executive Director and the Rev. Jill McAllister has become Senior Program Consultant.
Steve is now full-time for us and we thank Horsham Unitarian Church who have lost him as their part-time minister so he can devote more time to ICUU.
Congratulations also to Jill, our Senior Program Consultant, who will soon be moving to the West Coast of the USA to become the minister of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Corvallis, Oregon. ICUU also expresses it appreciation to People's Church of Kalamazoo, Michigan, the congregation that Jill is leaving, for enabling her to assist the worldwide U*U community.
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 Acting 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:
Please email us with other sites that you know about.

Global Chalice Lighting for May 2013
Congregations worldwide are invited to participate. We invite 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 and, where different, in their original language. This Global Chalice Lighting is submitted by the Canadian Unitarian Council for May 2013.
