High Plains Church Unitarian Universalist

Our Chalice

High Plains Chalice

At each HPCUU worship service we light a chalice designed and created for us by Deb Tudor of Manitou Springs. These rings arise out rotating triangles of reclaimed white aspen. Behind the triangles is a large stone of Colorado Granite. In the midst of stone and steel and wood flourishes a bright flame signifying the light of reason and peace and love which is the gospel of Unitarian Universalism that we share with our world.

At each HPCUU worship service we light a chalice with two rings arising out of rotating triangles of reclaimed white aspen. Behind the triangles is a large stone of Colorado Granite. In the midst of stone and steel and wood, a bright flame signifying the light of reason, peace and love which is the gospel of Unitarian Universalism that we share with the world.

The double rings made of recycled steel symbolize the pillars of faith that support the work we do as Unitarian Universalists--faith in the unity of all existence and faith in the inherent worth and dignity of all life. The stone mimics the sacred peak of the Ute Indians which we now call Pikes Peak and which symbolizes our community of Colorado Springs.
