Sunday, June 5, 2016: “Flower Communion: Connecting at the Roots”

Host: Don Morishita

Presenter: Rev. Elizabeth Greene

In June, Unitarian Universalists honor the ritual of Flower Communion, introduced into our religious tradition by Rev. Norbert Capek, in the 1930s. Capek was a Czech Unitarian minister who spoke passionately for human dignity and the right to worship freely, in the face of Nazi oppression. Capek died in a concentration camp, but he was an inspiration to his fellow prisoners, writing hymns and speaking words of comfort. We celebrate our freedom and connections with each other by bringing a flower to worship service, exchanging with each other these symbols of life and love.

uuscflowerUnitarian Universalism honors the differing paths we each travel. Our congregations are places where we celebrate, support, and challenge one another as we continue on these journeys. Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equality and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another.

Please join us Sunday at the Vendor Blender and Event Center, 588 Addison Avenue West in Twin Falls at 10:30 AM. The Vendor Blender is located near the old hospital near the intersection of Martin St. and Addison Avenue West. Newcomers of all religious paths or none at all are always welcome.
