August 25th, Sunday, 10:30 a.m.: The Language of Flowers
Ozzie Mayers will lead us in this service. “I am intrigued by how
flowers--so common place in our culture--help us dialogue with one
another, often opening up richer contexts than human speech”. So,
we will share among ourselves the ways particular flowers hold meanings
for us as they reveal what a flower conveys about our lives and the
lives of others. You are encouraged to bring a flower, a picture
of one, or a description that holds meaning to you. Children are
encouraged to join us for this sharing and to share what a flower means
to them. For refreshments, members of the Fellowship are urged to bring
something to share from their gardens or from local Farmers' Markets.
Weekly Sunday services will resume September 8 at 10:30 a.m.
