This Sunday’s Service – Flower Communion

June 19 Service at 10:30 AM

Reverend Julie Lombard, Minister

For seventy or so years UUs have been asked to bring a flower of their choice on this day, either from their own gardens or from the field or roadside. All blooms are welcome, even a simple supermarket bouquet. This ritual signifies that it’s by our own free will that we join with one another and our gathered flowers are a symbol of our united church fellowship. The significance of the flower communion is that as no two flowers are alike, so no two people are alike, yet each has a contribution to make. Our common bouquet would not be the same without the unique addition of each individual flower; and thus it is with our church community, it would not be the same without each and every one of us. Please join us for this special worship service—an affirmation of this blooming beloved community.
