Why do you attend Chalice? Is it for the community, the spiritual growth, or the commitment to justice work and love in action? Is it because of the friendly people of all ages, our wonderful children and elders, reminding you, you are not alone in this world? Is it for the music, or the many small group activities we offer? Whatever your reasons for coming to Chalice, today we will celebrate belonging to such an extraordinary Fellowship that honors who we are and challenges us to grow into the best version of ourselves.

Can we turn our prejudices around by learning to recognize the beauty in all of us, no matter how we look or what our background, culture or gender expression? Can we see the divine essence in us all?
