Sunday, May 2, 2021: Prickett’s Fort State Park and Flower Ceremony

Prickett’s Fort Cemetery

We have Spiritual Outings on the first Sunday of each month during the summer. For this year’s first outing, we will gather for a celebration of summer on Sunday, May 2, at Prickett’s Fort State Park.

We will have our Flower Ceremony, which was created by Dr. Norbert Čapek for the Liberal Religious Fellowship he founded in Prague, then Czechoslavakia, in 1925, and which became the largest Unitarian Church in the world. He sought a ceremony that would celebrate love and community and the interdependent web of life and love among a new and diverse congregation drawn from many backgrounds, and which would be a celebration not tied to any older religious ceremonies, which many of his congregation had rejected. Nearly a hundred years later, it is celebrated by many Unitarian Universalist congregations everywhere.

Please bring flowers to share. Whatever is blooming, or a twig in bud, is fine.

We will meet at 11 a.m. in the picnic area for a short service followed by a potluck picnic, conversation, and walking. We will be practicing social distancing and wearing masks. Bring food to share if you are able and wish to share; otherwise, just bring food for yourself and share our company.

During this time of continuing covid-19 pandemic we are practicing appropriate social distancing; please wear a mask.

Note: admission to the park itself is free of charge, but there is a fee if you want to visit the reconstructed fort or the museum. For further information, see here.

We would love to have you come worship with us.
