Flower Communion

Alex Haider-Winnett, Intern Minister, Worship Leader; Autumn Labbé-Renault, Worship Associate.

This beloved ritual comes from our European Unitarian heritage. In a time when fascism and division was the rule of law, this simple act of exchanging flowers was a sign of resistance and a way to value diversity.  In considering this ritual, how do we acknowledge the original purpose of the action? How do we use this symbol of rebirth, resurrection, and diversity as resistance against hate and oppression?
