“The Flower Ceremony” – Rev. Bill Gupton

Sunday Worship, May 7, 2023

This Sunday marks the 100th anniversary of the Flower Ceremony, a uniquely Unitarian Universalist rite of spring. Come celebrate the origins, and the modern vitality, of this ritual of springtime sharing. Each person (regardless of age) is asked to bring with them this morning a fresh flower, to place on our altar; everyone will leave with a different flower, brought by someone else in the congregation. We will enjoy music from our Choir and our retiring Music Director, Les Tacy, as we build our bouquet of beauty.

The service will also include a ceremony welcoming new members into the church.
