Make Your Own Family Chalice

Recently my congregation held a family event, a soup, salad and bread dinner that focused on the history of the chalice, and the symbolism
of the chalice.

If you visit the UUA website, and type in chalice history, you will find several good articles.

After you have shared the story and history with your family, create your own chalice by turning a clay pot upside down, and putting the
saucer on top. Some glitter glue and paint and you will have a beautiful family center piece for your table.

Back Again

After a very long break, I am back to blogging. What has kept me busy? Well, besides being active with the kids, I have been very involved with my church.

We are continuing to incorporate our religion in our daily lives through discussions, readings, and activities. Our church is hosting a Sources Supper, which will focus on the Chalice (the actual Sources Supper is geared for older children, and will take place later in the spring).
Each family will create their own chalice to take home. We also purchased the book Chalice, from the UUA bookstore.
