June 4, Flower Communion

We share in our annual Flower Communion Sunday commemorating the 100th Anniversary of this ritual which was first celebrated on June 4, 1923 in the Unitarian Church in Prague. The ceremony was conceived by the Rev. Norbert Čapek who felt that people in the Church needed a symbolic ritual that would bind them more closely together and that would be accessible to anyone regardless of their religious backgrounds. All ages are invited to participate in the full worship service. Music will be provided by the UCM choir singing a newly discovered song by Norbert Capek, “My Life is Made Worthwhile,” and Eliza Thomas on piano.

Please bring a cut flower from home to share during this morning’s flower communion, or have one nearby if joining over live stream, as we celebrate the blessing and delight of communion with one another and the natural world.
