Flower Communion - All invited to share a small bouquet!
All are invited to join our online Easter Sunday service on this Sunday, April 12th! It is our tradition to celebrate the season of birth, new life and transformation through stories of hope, beauty and love - with flowers and eggs playing starring roles! There will be music, stories and some moments of reflection with words from Rev. Gail Stratton. And, beaming in from his still-emerging-from-winter garden in Austria, Blake Shedd will share 'How To Meet A Flower.' All will be oriented for our intergenerational audience.
All are encouraged to contribute to our Online Flower Communion by choosing something budding or blooming from yard or environment to share beside you in this video service. Nothing fancy is required - just grab a jar or plastic cup and thus have a little 'vase of flowers' for all to see in the camera view of you. Thus, in an adapted way, the flowers we bring can be shared with all in the service, in the spirit of our usual Flower Communion! Of course it's just fine for those calling in by phone or participating without video to skip this (unless you just want some flowers for yourself... and then you can tell us about them during 'coffee hour'!!)
And - about eggs and egg hunting!! In recent years we have ended our Easter morning with an egg hunt - where the young people have hidden eggs for the adults! This year we'll need egg hunting stories since we can't do this in real time! We'll make time for a story or two...!!
Doors "open" via Zoom at 10:45 am and service starts at 11:00 am.
