Flower Communion, Kate Haven, preaching. The Flower communion service was created by Norbert Capek (1870-1942), who founded the Unitarian Church in Czechoslovakia. He introduced this special service to that church on June 4, 1923. For some time he had felt the need for some symbolic ritual that would bind people more closely together; A ritual that would not alienate any who had forsaken other religious traditions.He turned to the native beauty of their countryside for elements of a communion which would be genuine to them. The simple Flower Communion service was the result. It was such a success that it was held yearly just before the summer recess of the church.
This Sunday at our Intergenerational Service celebrating the season, creativity, connection to each other and the wider world seems like the perfect time to hold this unique Unitarian Universalist communion.
In the past we've been called to bring a flower with us to service for this celebration, leaving with a different flower from the communal vase, symbolizing participating of our own free will and parting with a symbol of our United church fellowship. You are invited to do just that, however there will be plenty of flowers available for all as you enter the Sanctuary this Sunday. All are welcome."

Listening for a Change, Rev. Amy Freedman, preaching. Given that we think at a faster rate than we hear words, it takes intention on our part to give our full attention to another person. What can we do to be more present to others? Deep listening is a practice that not only enables us to become better listeners but also can change our perspective. Join us for a service with music, mediation, and simple practices that can enrich our relationships and kindle our spiritual lives.

Mother of Us All, Rev. Richard Trudeau, preaching.A new look at the biblical story of Eve and the forbidden fruit, which for centuries conservative preachers have claimed to be about sin and the inferiority of women. The story is in fact a very UU story, and Eve is the hero!
