The Flower Communion is an annual tradition in UU churches. It was begun by a Unitarian minister in Czechoslovakia, Norbert F. Capek, who had started the first Unitarian church in that country in the 1920’s.
Norbert Capek preached that everyone was worthy, regardless of ethnic group, religion or creed. When the Nazis came to power this radical idea did not set at all well with them, and he was arrested and sent to the Dachau concentration camp where, sadly, he died.
We remember him with this beautiful ceremony each June and celebrate the fact that all people are welcome here as long as they treat each other with respect.
