The Flower Communion is an annual springtime celebration in most Unitarian Universalist congregations, celebrating the beauty of diversity. Traditionally each person brings a flower, preferably found in their own garden or by the roadside, and each person leaves with a different flower. We’ll redesign that ritual for our current time, but retain that essential meaning – the beauty of diversity. Lynn Cleek will be the service leader.

The times in which we’re living are distinguished by certain characteristics, one being that every opinion is valid. Everyone deserves a hearing and there is no right or wrong. If you think that way or believe that standard, then you have to admit that there isn’t any such thing as truth. And yet you are going to have to confess that our world contains certain elements that are true and others that are not. If you read Proverbs 30:33 you find three things that are true. “As the beating of cream yields butter and striking the nose causes bleeding, so stirring up anger causes quarrels.” All three are true. The concept of truth is alive and well in our world. But if you’re a Christian you realize that the truths of the Christian faith will be opposed by some. The apostle Paul urged believers to “contend for the faith once for all delivered to the saints.” That doesn’t mean we should be argumentative, but rather to stand firmly for what is true. You can do that yet operate in a gracious and loving manner. That’s the spirit of Christ and you’re His representative.
