Flower Communion

Hybrid Service In Person and on Zoom

Speaker: Ceile Hartleib

June 20th Sunday Service - Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of OttawaThe Flower Communion service was created by Norbert Capek (1870-1942) who founded the Unitarian Church in Czechoslovakia. He felt the need for some symbolic ritual that would bind people more closely together.

Congregants are asked to bring a flower of their choice, from their gardens, the roadside, or flower shop. Each person upon arrival places their flower in a vase at the front of the room, symbolizing the larger fellowship. At the end of the service, people are asked to take home a flower other than the one they brought. (Adapted from UUA.org)

This will be the last service until we meet again on after Labor Day, September 10, 2023.
