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.
