UPDATE: This forum has been cancelled. The community dinner will be offered 6–6:30 p.m. as usual.
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 19, 6:45–8:15 P.M., in person in Bloedel Hall only. Optional community dinner at 6 p.m. ($6/child; $8/adult; $25/max. family).
The members of the Flower Ministry create exceptional arrangements in the nave and chapel each week, taking the beauty in nature and transforming it, through human reason and skill, into striking displays—as a service to the community and as an offering of beauty back to the One who made it. Gather for this in-person only forum with members of the flower ministry and explore together questions such as: Why are flowers part of rituals and offerings in almost every religion in the world? What has the symbolism of flowers meant for Christians specifically? What is the role of the floral artist in showing off the natural beauty of plants and flowers to their best advantage? All are welcome.
