A chalice lighting for challenging times,
We Are Called
by Darrick Jackson
 
In these times, we are called:
Called to step into the mess and murk of life
Called to be strong and vulnerable
Called to console and to challenge
Called to be grounded, and hold lofty ideals
Called to love in the face of hate

We are called
And it is not easy
And we will not always agree
And we will yell, and scream and cry
And we will laugh and smile and sing

We are called to be together
There is so much work to do
And we cannot do it alone
We need one another
Holding each other accountable to our covenants, to the holy, to love and justice

In these times, we are called.
