Day Five - All people need a voice.

Today we light the chalice for - the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large. What does this mean? It is nice idea but who runs your congregation?  Is it one person or a small group that makes all the decisions? Are you being heard or do you really not want to do the work and thus let others take charge? 
Welcome to our new viewers from Argentina, Canada, Italy, Sweden and Switzerland!
Today on Chalica! (facebook page) Kat Morrell wrote, "Great new tradition. I love lighting a chalice before meals and meetings. If anyone is looking for little chalice for home or meeting use, I am a potter and make personal chalices and sell them on etsy  I'm working on making some larger chalices now. You can see my personal chalices on my website www.personalchalice.com" There are some very nice chalices there. ~)c
Thank you to Freya Vass-Rhee and her latest Chalica song:
I have a little chalice
I made it out of clay
And when I have made seven
I’ll light one every day

...Oh chalice chalice chalice
I made it out of clay
Oh chalice chalice chalice
I’ll light one every day

It has a lovely body
A flame so pure and bright
And in the week of Chalica
I’ll light one every night

Oh chalice chalice chalice
With flame so pure and bright
Oh chalice chalice chalice
I’ll light one every night

Our chalice stands for goodness
For love that’s ours to share
And seven days and seven ways
To bring light everywhere

Oh chalice chalice chalice
The love that’s ours to share
Oh chalice chalice chalice 
Let’s bring light everywhere
