We’re a predominantly white religious community in a predominantly white city and county. But what is whiteness? What does understanding it have to do with liberation and working towards racial justice? Can we allow ourselves to be both racists-in-recovery and anti-racists-in-training? How might we learn to love ourselves as people-in-process? What helps us stay engaged in the sacred and messy work of building community across differences, for us and for generations after us? Let’s look for ways to live these questions together.

This coming Sunday, May 19, is a very special day in the life of our fellowship! Known as the “Flower Service,” our gathering for worship will feature the annual spring-time ritual of the Flower Communion plus a message led by Norma Bailey titled “Meditation for Flower Communion,” by David E. Brumbaugh. The service will also include a New Member Ceremony welcoming four new members to our Fellowship. Our worship service will be followed immediately by the UUFCM Annual Meeting – please plan to join us!
Come celebrate the affirming, uniquely Unitarian Universalist ritual of Flower Communion. Developed by Czech Unitarian minister Norbert Capek who died a martyr at Dachau, the ritual celebrates the unity within our diversity and the intrinsic beauty of each and every soul. Please remember to bring a flower with you to service – preferably a flower you really love – to place in the communal vase in front of the sanctuary. And if you forget a flower don’t worry - we will have extra ones.
