Flowers, flowers, everywhere. At least I hope so. I need each of you to help make our flower communion a blooming success. By which I mean that I need everyone to bring some flowers on Sunday so that we have plenty of flowers for visitors, guests and folks that might forget to bring one. On flower communion Sunday we pause to reflect on how beautiful congregational life can be when we celebrate each person’s gift as it relates to the bouquet we make as a congregation.

This will be my last Sunday with you as your Interim Minister. We will celebrate our time together and give thanks for all we have learned and shared and all the ways we have grown. And it will be a time of mutual blessing. I have asked your new developmental minister, the Rev. Barbara Fast, to participate in this blessing ritual.

In a world where everything seems turned upside down, compassion may be one of the few things we can practice that will bring immediate and long-term happiness into our lives. Join Rev. Don as he explores practical ways to cultivate compassion as a tool for self-improvement, happiness, health, and inner peace.

For our Independence Day service, Brian Joyner will introduce a four-part series based on freedom and President FDR’s State of the Union address in 1941. Roosevelt’s aspiration for the United States was to create a world founded upon four essential human freedoms: Freedom of speech and the press; freedom of religion; freedom from want and freedom of fear. In this series, speakers will provide an overview of each of the four freedoms, connect them to our Seven Principles and offer a call to action for congregants to do their part in protecting and promoting these freedoms.
