The Flower Communion is an annual service in which we each bring a flower, create an altar full of bouquets, and end by each taking away a flower that another person brought. Founded in 1923 by Czech Unitarian minister Norbert Čapek, this ritual was spread all over the United States through the leadership of his wife Maja, and is celebrated in most Unitarian Universalist congregations to this day.
We may not be able to smell and hold the flowers, but we will still have a service full of blooms on June 21. Please send Amy a digital photo* of a flower or flowers you have seen: in your garden, the neighborhood, a vase on your table, a park …
Having your smiling faces in the photos is a bonus. In order to include your image, Amy must receive it by June 16, and we must have your prior permission, since the service will be online on Zoom, Facebook Live and YouTube. (We will not attach names to the images.)
Release form for photos of adults
* If you prefer to send a printed photograph, please make sure it arrives at Amy’s home (not church; address is in the directory) by this date.
