Welcoming Joy

Rev. Tricia and Rev. Christina led us in celebrating our congregation at the end of this first year of transition.  We looked to the future, and recognized new members.  We brought flowers to add to our communal bouquet. The Flower Ceremony, sometimes referred to as Flower Communion or Flower Festival, is an annual UU ritual that celebrates beauty, human uniqueness, diversity, and community. Originally created in 1923 by Unitarian minister Norbert Čapek of Prague, Czechoslovakia, the Flower Ceremony was introduced to the United States by Rev. Mája Čapek, Norbert’s widow. This piece on WorshipWeb, by the Revs. Teresa and David Schwartz, tells The Story of Norbert Čapek’s Flower Ceremony. We shared our offering with Outright VT.

Followed by CVUUS Annual Meeting, our sacred time for conducting business.  See supporting documents here. Rhubarb Festival  leftovers were available for sale and sampling.
