“Flower Communion: Learning to Love Dandelions,” Rev. Tony Larsen

Celebrating our traditional UU Flower Communion (begun by the Rev. Norbert Capek, a Czeck Unitarian minister). We won’t be able to exchange actual flowers with one another at church, as we usually do, but we will experience a communion of flowers nonetheless. Tony’s sermon will help us explore our attitudes toward people and things that appear to some as weeds.

We won’t be able to exchange actual flowers with one another at church, as we usually do, but we will experience a communion of flowers nonetheless. Because this year’s service will be a virtual one, we are asking you to send in digital versions of your flowers in advance. Maybe you take a photo of your favorite flower in your garden or a big shot of the garden? Perhaps you go on a walk and snap some fabulous pics of the neighbor’s flowers or those in a nearby park? Or maybe you find a beautiful flower online, or you have a favorite artist’s rendition of flowers that you’d like to share? Perhaps you are an artist and have a drawing or painting you could share a picture of? Or perhaps you color for relaxation? Or Zentagle? And so-on.

 

Whatever flower image you decide to share this year, please send it to

ucnflowers@gmail.com as soon as possible.

 

Jackee will make sure that you leave the service with an image other than your own in much the same way that you would have left our church with a different flower once before. Showing once again that we are one even though we are apart. To make sure you can participate, please send your flowers to Jackee ASAP. Friday, May 22, at 11:59 PM, is the cut-off for participation, and be sure to send them directly to ucnflowers@gmail.com.
