For hundreds of years, communities of faith have celebrated Easter morning by transforming the cross. The cross, a symbol of violence and the suffering of Good Friday becomes transformed by flowers into a display of beauty. The flowering of the cross symbolizes the hope that beauty can arise from brokenness.
This Easter Sunday let’s live into this ancient tradition. Bring flowers from your home garden (or local store) and add a touch of color and beauty to the wooden cross that will be in the sanctuary.
Together, our combined floral gifts will visually represent the new life that we are celebrating after witnessing the very instrument of death and endings transformed by Christ’s rising.
Please feel free to bring any extra flowers you may have so that we might share with all who come.
