Let Us Flower (Sun. 26 May, 2019 10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Sermon by Rev. Shawn Newton & Rev. Lynn Harrison. Join us on Sunday for our annual celebration of Spring—which has arrived just in the nick of time!—as we create a grand bouquet of flowers to reflect the wonder of both our individuality and our diversity on this good green earth. 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.) As we conclude our Sacred Depths of Nature series, we will reflect on the joy that the Earth offers to us all. I’ll be joined in offering reflections by Leslie Solomonian, Eliot Feentstra, and Rev. Lynn Harrison. A reminder that following the service and coffee hour this week, we will hold our Annual General Meeting, starting at 12:30pm. Finally, we will celebrate the life of Larry Wulff next Tuesday morning at 11am in Sunderland Hall. The flowers in front of the pulpit this Sunday are being given by his family to honour his memory. In faith and love, Shawn View the Order of Service.
