"Sweet, Impossible Blossom" (Sun. 28 May, 2017 10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Flower Communion Sunday – Bring a Flower!

Sermon by Rev. Shawn Newton and Danielle Webber, Intern Minister.

Join us on Sunday for our annual celebration of Spring, as we create a grand arrangement of flowers to reflect the glory of both our individuality and our diversity. Please remember to bring a flower (or a few!) with you to mark this ritual. (If you are unable to bring a flower, know there will be flowers waiting for you.)

My reflection for the service, “Sweet, Impossible Blossom,” is based on the poem by Li-Young Lee’s beautiful poem, “From Blossoms,” which is certainly worth a read before Sunday. Our service will weave together the meanings of Flower Communion with our month’s theme, compassion.

A reminder that following the service and coffee hour this week, we will hold our Annual General Meeting, starting at 12:30 pm.

See you on Sunday!

In faith and love,
Shawn
