Messengers of Love

Sunday, May 14, 2023 at 10 AM

A multi-platform service led by Rev. Steven Protzman, DRE Colleen Thoele, and Worship Associate CLM Lori Mirken-McGee.

In 1923, the Rev. Norbert Capek created the very first flower ceremony for his Unitarian congregation in Prague, Czechoslovakia.  As he blessed the flowers, he spoke of them as “messengers of love”.  His wife Maja brought the ceremony to the United States and now many UU congregations have this ceremony each year in the spring.  As a community of all ages, we will celebrate the flower ceremony with stories, songs, and the ritual of sharing flowers.  If attending in person, please bring fresh flowers to share. If attending via Zoom, please have a flower available for yourself.
