First Flower Communion held

April 22 the Camden Area Unitarian Universalists held their first Flower Communion, led by Ian Greasley. This service was created in 1923 by Norbert Capek, a Unitarian minister in Czechoslovakia who was killed in a Nazi concentration camp.

Each person places a flower of his choice in a vase. Together, the flowers form a bouquet like people form a church community that would not be the same without the contributions of each member. At the end, people take away a different flower. Musical was by Paul Riley.

Camden Area Unitarian Universalists hold services at 10 a.m. on the second and fourth Sundays of the month at members’ homes. For information, email
