This Week’s Saturday and Sunday Services – Flower Ceremony

June 19th Gathering at 10:30 AM

June 20th Virtual Service at 10:30 AM on Zoom

Rev. Carol Strecker, Interim Minister 

Join us Saturday and Sunday for an in-person and virtual celebration of the beauty that is unity in diversity, a tradition with deep roots in our Unitarian Universalist faith. Each of us is a unique flower with gifts of great beauty to share. We’ll honor the unique gifts of several very special people including volunteer recognition and the Ann Milender and Frank Farnum awards. 

Our celebration will begin on Saturday, June 19th. Bring a flower to NSUU between 10:30am and 11:30. Together we’ll make a beautiful bouquet as we greet one another in the parking lot! From 11:30 until noon you’ll have an opportunity to choose a different flower than the one you brought to take home with you; symbolizing the unique beauty in every flower and the impact that beauty has on our lives together. We’ll create a video on Saturday that we’ll include in our Zoom service on Sunday morning, June 20. If you are unable to join us in person on June 19th, Barbara Reeder has volunteered to arrange for someone to deliver a flower to your home. Please contact her at barellenroth@yahoo.com if you’d like to receive a flower from the bouquet. 

On Saturday you’ll also have the opportunity to explore the Memorial Garden. We’ll set aside flowers for people connected to NSUU who have died, remembering their unique gifts and how their loss touches us all. Please wear a mask, practice social distancing and remain outdoors as much as possible during our gathering on Saturday. This will allow us to be as inclusive while keeping everyone as safe as possible.
