SUMMER CHALICE CAMP

Monday-Friday July 18th - 22nd


It's a blessing each of us was born.
It matters what we do with our lives.
What each of us knows about god is a piece of the truth.
We don't have to do it alone.

Summer Chalice Camp was created & developed by Laila Ibrahaim (early childhood educator with M.A. in developmental psychology) & Rev. Sheri Prud'homme (UU Minister of Religious Education).

"For complex reasons, attributed to human nature, political or economic gain, or other forms of power, humans often destroy or dominate "the other."

In our religious understanding, we are called to acknowledge the spark of the divine in all people, the blessing of everyone's birth. This guides our relations with groups of people who are not like us or whom we have not met.

Throughout our Unitarian & Universalist histories, this belief has compelled us to fight for the civil rights of people who have been in some way marginalized by the dominant culture. The ethical impulse to resist that which causes life harm & to create the conditions for justice & the full flourishing of life is central to Unitarian Universalism.

Along with this comes an obligation to critique & correct the ways that we (as well as our institutions) cause harm to life. In other words, we all must be saved from the human creations that systemically cause oppression & suffering which leads us to the next statement, *It matters what we do with our lives.*
~ Sheri Prud'homme

We'll share time in Worship, Circle Groups, Outside Fun & Theater - Plays Include: Unitarianism, Universalism, Transcendentalism, & Civil Rights
