Flower Communion

The Flower Communion, created in 1923 by Unitarian minister Norbert Capek of Prague, Czechoslovakia, is an annual ritual that celebrates beauty, human uniqueness, diversity, and community. In this ceremony, everyone in the congregation brings a flower. Each person places a flower in a shared vase. The congregation and service leader bless the flowers, and they’re redistributed. Each person brings home a different flower than the one they brought.
