Today is the seventh day of the Unitarian Universalist festival of light. Chalica is seven days long and runs from the first Monday in December through to Sunday. Each day represents a different Unitarian Principle, a chalice is lit each day and we say why we light the chalice for that day. Gift(s) can be given and received. Gifts can be made, bought, verbal, written, acts, and/or shared/personal celebrations. One can have seven different chalices or one common chalice
Sunday: We light our chalice for respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. Give gift(s) to our earth and/or its creatures
Examples:- start a compost- recycle bottles and cans and donate the money to an environmental / animal aid society- rescue an animal from a shelter- hold an outdoor worship service (dress warm/bonfire)
