Flowering the Easter Cross

Flowered crossOn Easter Sunday, April 21st, we invite you to be part of the “Flowering of the Easter Cross”, an ancient and meaningful tradition.
 
As you prepare for Easter worship, pick fresh flowers from your garden or yard and bring them with you to the church.  As you arrive, come to the main entrance in front of The Commons, stand before the large cross and place your flowers upon it.
 
Like the unfolding of a worshipful orchestra, eventually the cross will be covered in beautiful flowers in a brilliant array of color, light and lovely fragrance. A symbol of death, darkness, pain and hopelessness is transformed into something beautiful, new and alive in celebration of the Resurrection of Christ.  Together, we can transform the cross and help make this Easter a celebration of new life.
