Light From Coming of Age.
Coming of Age youth talked about how the chalice was designed to be a sign of dependable security as UUs shepherded people to safety in Nazi Germany.
“Each of us has to choose whether we will be shelter for others,” said Kate Christopher, the sculptor who for years has opened her studio for our youth.
“It is the ministry of our faith community to remain a safe place for the stranger to find rest and freedom and hope” – and to expand our mission to create a world that is safe for all of us to be who we are and who we are called to be.
The class made chalices, which are fired in a kiln as they are formed, and again when they are glazed. The chalices will go home with each youth after a closing ceremony for Coming of Age the evening of May 22nd.
Consider: In what ways do you choose to be shelter for others?
