Bring a flower to share
This service is the last in our sanctuary until the Sunday after Labor Day. As we mark this transition in space and time, we will celebrate Flower Communion. Sometimes referred to as Flower Ceremony or Flower Festival, this ritual celebrates beauty, human uniqueness, diversity and community. Originally created in 1923 by Unitarian minister Bort Capek of Prague, Czechoslovakia, the Flower Ceremony was introduced to the United States by Rev. Maya Capek, Norbert’s widow. Each of us is invited to bring a flower, and they are gathered as the service begins. At the end of the service, each of us takes a different flower than the one we brought. In between, we’ll celebrate.
