The children's class enjoyed a visit from Norbert Capek, the creator of the flower communion.
We made musical instruments from recycled materials. Norbert Capek had a large, musical family. They had enough musicians to make their own family orchestra.
We made tissue paper flowers and celebrated our own flower communion.
Norbert described the first flower communion, held at his church in Prague, "We put a big table in the middle of the worship space, and on it a large vase. The vase represented the Unitarian church, which helps everyone in the congregation share the beauties in life. Each person had been told to bring a flower along that Sunday, and each put his or her flower in the vase. In my sermon, I talked about how each and every flower was different and important, just like every person in my congregation. And yet they all belonged together in one community, as sisters and brothers. In this Unitarian community, when they gave their best that was in them for the good of everyone, they were able to do together what no one person can do alone."
