The Fourth Day of Chalica 2013

Happy Chalica!

What will you do today to honor our Fourth Principle?

To the right is the children's version of our Principles, which is we can search for what is true.

The adult version of this principle is: a free and responsible search for truth and meaning.

What does this mean to you?  Last year on the 4th day of Chalica the two lost Iowa couins were found unfortunately they were not found alive.  In two days it will be that anniversary, and there are still no answers to what happened to them.  One of my dear friends, Diane and her family were neighbors and friends of one of the girl,  sometimes we forget that family are not the only ones affected by something like this. People are slowly getting on with their lives.

Give gift(s) to honor another tradition, to honor education
- offer / take part in an event that celebrates another religion / tradition
- teach someone something you know and love
- learn something new from someone else
- give a book / read a book

I just learned about a new tradition being promoted by I am UU on Facebook. It is called "This Little Light" Chalice Challenge, Solstice Weekend! The challenge is to change your profile picture on Facebook to a flaming chalice for the solstice weekend or you can add a simple chalice to any profile, you can use this link to do so:
I love the following lines from the website:

"This is a non-intrusive way to share your Unitarian Universalist identity with your friends (and their friends) at a time of year when a lot of people are looking for a loving, encouraging community. Will you join us in spreading this idea? Share this idea with your friends and your congregation, and let's see if we can't get thousands of Flaming Chalices popping up all over Facebook!You might want to check out both these these sites."
