Flower Communion 2022: More Than You Know

Every person contains contradictions and complexities beyond what you might ever imagine. Even you. There are parts of ourselves that lay dormant or emerge at different stages of our lives and can come as a big surprise when they do. One of the gifts of a diverse, multi-generational community is that through relationship we can better see and know the fullness of our own stories and the fullness in others.
This idea is the celebration at the heart of our annual Flower Communion ceremony. Norbert Capek started the Unitarian ritual of Flower Communion to help his Unitarian Czechoslovakian congregation celebrate the diversity in their community. In 1923, Rev. Maya Capek, Norbert’s widow, introduced Flower Communion to the United States. It is an especially fitting ritual for this year as it was created in the shadow of war and Norbert’s own story, which tragically ended when he was killed at Dachau for his Unitarian beliefs.

Join us this Sunday, June 5, as we kick off our Humans of Foothills series with our annual Flower Communion! This year’s Flower Communion theme is More Than You Know.
