Awaken to Life

Service at 9:15 and 11:00 am

Celebrant, 

Every flower is beautiful and whole unto itself. Today is Easter in the Christian tradition The Easter story features a tomb with the stone rolled away. Less well-known is that the earliest versions of the gospel according to Mark ended the story with the discovery of the empty tomb. Christian or not, what meaning might people of the 21st century take from a story with that ending? Today’s service features poetry by Geoffrey Chaucer, T.S. Elliot, Alice Berry, and Langston Hughes; music by the Bell Ave. Ringers; and the UU Flower Communion. Bring in a flower to share—leave with a different one. Children will be in the service at the beginning and for the Flower Communion at the end.
