Description

PLEASE NOTE:* The Unitarian Congregation meets inside Temple Beth Tikvah at 1600 No. Acacia Ave., Fullerton 92831

Attend a service, which will include a homily, music, and other regular elements of a Unitarian service. This particular service will, also, include a special Unitarian Ritual, the “Flower Communion”, occurring that day. The Flower Communion is a spring or summertime ritual created by Czechoslovakian Unitarian Minister, Norbert Capek. In an effort to bring the diversity of Unitarian congregations together, Capek created the Flower Communion. In the ritual, everyone attending brings a flower (originally from the roadside or their own garden, but more recently often from a flower stand or grocery store). The flowers are placed in prominently displayed vases. Plainly visible is the diversity of color and shape of the blooms and, also, the beautiful picture they make when gathered together. The communion is a time when each congregant comes forward and takes a flower, other than the one they brought, to take home with them.

Overview of the Day:

• Learn all about the Unitarian Universalist faith
