UUF service on Sunday, June 8

Published 10:00 pm Thursday, June 5, 2014

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will hold its last service until the fall on Sunday, June 8 at 10:30 a.m. at the Tryon Youth Center on Rt. 176 N. The speaker will be Reverend Sally Beth Shore who will speak on the topic “The Tradition of the Flower Communion and Its Founder.”
According to Rev. Shore, the Flower Communion is a June tradition, a Unitarian ritual created in 1923 by the Czechoslovakian Unitarian minister Norbert Capek. Reverend Shore will speak about some of Capek’s thoughts and the vision of Unitarianism he offered before his death at the hands of the Nazis. Bring a flower – from your yard, the woods or roadside.
The annual meeting, election of officers and potluck lunch will follow immediately after the service. Please bring a casserole, salad or dessert and your place setting. The main course will be provided.
There will be a Unitarian book group meeting on the first and third Sundays during the summer. Information about this group can be seen in our newsletter available on the website.
For information call 828-513-0570.
