“How We Bloom” – Easter
Rev. Mark Ward, Lead Minister

Integrated in our worship today will be one of the great historic Unitarian traditions – the Flower Ceremony – as we reflect at this time of Easter on what it takes and what it means for each of us to bloom. Please bring a flower of your choice for each member of your family – from your garden, from the roadside, wherever you may find it – to share.
