Seasons of Abundance – Flower Communion Sunday

Seasons of Abundance - Flower Communion Sunday

Topic: Gifts of Repetition – Flower Communion Sunday

Unitarian Universalists tend to love variety – drawing knowledge and insight from many sources. But what about repetition? What value might repetition bring to our community?

We live in a time full of abundance – abundance of resources … abundance of opportunity … abundance of freedom. And, we know that these are not ‘givens’ – that not everyone enjoys them, and that none are guaranteed. What does it mean, to live in Seasons of Abundance?

Speaker: Reverend Anne Barker

Service Leader:

Musician: Steve Bell

** Children begin downstairs **

** A Lay Chaplaincy Ritual will occur today – thanking our retiring Lay Chaplain, Leigh Bornn **

** Rainbow Story Flower Communion happens this Sunday – children will be upstairs at the end of the service for this ritual **
