FLOWER COMMUNION SUNDAY

This Sunday we celebrate Flower Communion, a service 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 Capek had felt the need for some symbolic ritual that would bind people more closely together. So he turned to the native beauty of their countryside for elements of a communion which would be genuine to them.

Bring a flower (or more) to add to our bouquet. Each of us will take home a flower brought by another.
Service led by Tracey Robinson-Harris

ONE SERVICE ONLY AT 10 AM

This sermon was an item in the Worship Committee Basket for the FPC Auction this past Spring. The basket was purchased by Lynette Sinclair. Lynette asked for a reflection on resilience—how we find the will to go on, the ability to bounce back, the courage to move ahead… and to do so through the lens of dance. Rev. Tracey will lead the service.

Rev. Dr. Cynthia Landrum will lead the service
ONE SERVICE ONLY AT 10 AM

Hope and Love are two of the tools we use in the universe-bending work of justice. Rev. Cindy will share how she finds hope in times of struggle, and love in the face of hate, and talk about the work that is in front of us as a faith in these challenging times. Rev. Dr. Cynthia Landrum is our our candidate for settled minister.

A congregational meeting will follow the service with a vote to decide if we call Rev. Dr. Landrum to be our next settled minister. Please mark your calendars and plan to attend and vote.

Rev. Dr. Cynthia Landrum will lead the service

Rev. Dr. Cynthia Landrum is our our candidate for settled minister. Rev. Cindy's background in literature and love of the written word led her on her path to becoming a Unitarian Universalist minister and continue to inspire her and challenge her to think about theology, ethics, and social justice today. This sermon will explore some of those literary sources that she draws from in her "loose-leaf Bible." We will also recognize Mother's Day and the role of parents of all genders.

ONE SERVICE ONLY AT 11 AM

In scrolling through clergy resources online recently, I came across a graphic with words something like this: grace is that moment when love meets imperfection. There is more to it than that, I'm sure. And that's where this Sunday's reflections will start. Rev. Tracey Robinson-Harris will lead the service.

Sunday, April 22nd, 2018

This service honors Earth Day and the work of Climate Justice being done here in our communities and around the world. In the hymn "Turn Back" are these words: Earth shall be fair and all its people one. What does fair mean for us today? How can all people be as one? How shall we make it so? Rev. Tracey Robinson-Harris and the Climate Justice Task Force will lead the services.

Sunday, April 15th, 2018

Inspired by the words of James Luther Adams—that we have "the responsibility to offer a church in which we elicit participation"—and of Margaret Wheatley—"be brave enough to start a conversation that matters"—this sermon focuses on belonging, participation and the power of conversation. Rev. Tracey Robinson-Harris will lead the services.
