The title for this multi-generational service comes from a musical, The Lorax, written in part by Dr. Seuss. We recognize on this Sunday that Unitarian Universalism is a path committed to ongoing personal and spiritual growth. Our Unitarian forebears were committed to what they called “self-culture” that came from an understanding that we can participate in our soul’s ongoing development. In that spirit, we’ll take time to appreciate our Lifespan Faith Development programs.
This year, we’ll also have a Bridging Ceremony for Allison Perry. A Bridging Ceremony occurs in UU congregations as a celebration of the transition of our youth from their high school experience into young adulthood.
We’ll incorporate into this Sunday’s service our annual celebration of the Flower Communion ceremony, first created by Norbert Čapek (1870-1942), a Unitarian minister who brought the Unitarian faith from the United States to thousands in what is now the Czech Republic.
