UUs hold International Flower Communion June 10

Published 5:34 pm Thursday, June 7, 2012

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will meet on Sunday, June 10 at 10:30 a.m. at the Tryon Youth Center on Hwy. 176. The speaker for this final service until September will be Reverend Jean Rowe. She will lead an International Flower Communion.
“This year on June 10, Czech Unitarians will celebrate the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Prague Unitarian Church, and the 89th International Flower Communion. We’ll be with them in spirit right here in the Tryon Youth Center at 10:30 a.m.,” Rowe said.
The Flower Communion signifies the historic Unitarian emphasis on tolerance and acceptance of one another, Rowe said. Each person is invited to bring a flower or flowering branch to add to a large bouquet the group will create. Before leaving, each one will take a different flower.
“The celebration, though simple in concept, is moving and beautiful,” Rowe said.
Following this service will be a general meeting and election of officers for the coming year, as well as a pizza party provided by Franklin McKaig. Pizza and salad will be available. Attendees are asked to bring a dessert and drink.
