Flower Communion

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, an 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. Each person brings home a different flower than the one they brought.
