Join us for Flower Communion! Our fourth Unitarian Universalist Source is “Jewish and Christian teachings . . .” Both of these religions have a rich tradition of ritual to add depth to the lives of adherents; a relatively recent ritual for Unitarian Universalists is the Flower Communion, which many of our congregations observe each Spring.
In our annual Easter sermon Dr. Bossen reflects on the story of the resurrection from a Unitarian Universalist perspective. In this spirit, he encourages us to consider on where we find and what we name the holy.

Astonishing and alarming events have unfolded in Washington this afternoon and evening. Treasonous actors stormed, vandalized, and broke into the U.S. Capitol, temporarily stopping the electoral vote. Because of the events of the day, our Senior Minister, the Rev. Dr. Colin Bossen has recorded this Prayer for Democracy. Please join him and your fellow congregants in praying for our country.
Today First Church is offering a prayer for the election. It is an opportunity for everybody to find their center and join in community, albeit online. We invite you to join us!
