Originally created in 1923 by Unitarian minister Norbert Capek of Prague, Czechoslovakia, the Flower Communion is an annual ritual that celebrates beauty, human uniqueness, diversity, and community. In this ceremony, everyone in the congregation brings (or is given) a flower. Each person places a flower on the altar or in a shared vase. The congregation blesses the flowers, and they’re redistributed so that each person brings home a different flower than the one they brought.
For those attending in-person, if you are so moved please bring a flower for the blessing, and we’ll also have flowers to hand out. To honor our covenant to each other and recognize our responsibility to care for and protect the most vulnerable among us, face masks are required in the building during Sunday service, vaccinations are strongly encouraged, and everyone must self-screen before attending in-person.
