In this homily, Rev. Kristen connects the story of Flower Communion to the movement for Black Lives, and our movement for collective liberation
She writes: “This season of flower communion recommits us to honoring the beauty of Life, the beauty of Black life, the beauty of Brown life, the beauty that moves within, between and among us - calling us - nudging us through our senses - to remember. To remember the inherent worth and beauty of every person. To remember - to see and to know, to name and to celebrate our differences.
To remember our connectedness - our interdependence - and the complicated and essential truth that none of us are free until all of us are free.”
