This will also be our Flower Communion Sunday. We are all invited to bring a flower to worship (from your garden, the side of the road, a wildflower from the parking lot…) to create a gorgeous bouquet at the front of the church. At the end of the service we will bring home a flower shared by someone else. This tradition was brought to the United States in 1940 from the Unitarian Church in Czechoslovakia. This simple service of sharing is a favorite of Unitarian Universalists around the world! – Music: Hilda Banks Shapiro, piano; UUMSB Choir.
