Autonomy is such a heralded concept in Unitarian Universalism that one can easily overlook the importance of community. As we honour the UU tradition of Flower Communion this Sunday, we will explore how this celebration connects us.
Please remember to bring a flower to contribute to the service if possible.
(Note: This is a multi-generational service; the children stay upstairs for the service.)

As we learn about the people with whom we share this country, both those who have been here for centuries, and those only just arriving, can we begin to forge a sense of interdependence?
