Chalica: Day 1
Above: A YouTube video of "The Chalica Song"...
There is so much happening right now that is hard. The war in Afghanistan is escalating, which is making me personally feel quite sad. The economy is still trying to recover. There are many more things that I could list, of course.
But this week, I am trying to focus on the light. I am celebrating Chalica, and I will post each day of Chalica.
What is Chalica, you ask? It's a vintage 2005 Unitarian Universalist holiday, seven days long. Each day we focus on one of our seven Unitarian Universalist principles. You can read more about Chalica at this link. (It's just a touch tongue-in-cheek, and so it can take some of the "holiday season" pressure off. If Chalica is adding pressure to your life, you're not celebrating it correctly!)
Today is Day 1, and so we light a chalice and think about "the inherent worth and dignity of every person". What could you do today to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person?
