All Souls Unitarian Church, Tulsa, OK


May 12, 2013

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, May 12, 2013, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

One of my favorite memories of growing up Unitarian Universalist was the flower communion service each spring. Before church, my brother and I would go into the backyard and cut flowers from our garden, one for each member of our family. We carefully brought the flowers to church and deposited them in a basket on our way into the sanctuary. The part I liked best was getting to choose someone else’s flower from the colorful array to take home.

Prior to WWII this special service was created by Unitarians in Czechoslovakia who were a prominent Humanist congregation and one of the largest Unitarian churches in history. Here at All Souls we celebrate the flower communion each Mother’s Day. Another All Souls tradition is the Mother’s Day brunch. This year it is hosted by our Youth Group and the money they raise will go to help fund their upcoming SpiritqUUest trip. I invite you to bring a flower (if you can’t, we will have plenty for everyone to participate) and join us for this festive celebration.
