Chalica is a weeklong holiday, during which we honor and celebrate our seven Unitarian Universalist Principles. It is a time dedicated to reflecting and putting into practice, through our words and deeds, one Principle per day for seven days.
For me, Chalica is an opportunity for introspection and a slowing down. It is a perfect time to really dive deep into our Seven Principles and to build a meaningful UU spiritual practice for ourselves.
The celebration kicks-off on Monday, December 6th and ends on Sunday, December 12th. Each day of Chalica via the BBUUC Community Facebook Group, we will light our chalice candles together and share a reflection for the Principle of the day.
Chalica Kits will be available Sunday, December 5th at our worship service. Look for the RE table in the back of the Sanctuary.
