Flower Communion Festival

The Flower Communion ritual originated in 1923 among Unitarians in Czechoslovakia, and is practiced by many UU congregations around the world.  Each person is asked to bring a flower to church.  (If you forget, don’t worry; there will be extra flowers for you.)  The flowers will be arranged into a bouquet, symbolizing the community we create out of our unique selves.  At the end of the service, each person takes a different flower home, to remind us of the ways we appreciate and support one another despite our differences.  Also, as part of our “Then Sings My Soul” series, Callie Amiday will share about her journey into motherhood and the birth of other life journeys with the song “We Are”.
