The Persistence of Flowers
Led by Ellen Hansen-Ellis

We come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, a varied bouquet of beautiful UU’s. Come join
in our annual Flower Communion service, celebrating the real and metaphoric inspiration of
nature’s garden . If you are able, bring a flower to contribute, and plan to take one home as a
symbol of our interconnectedness.

May Focus Collection


Urban Hope, Cleveland, Ohio

Our Focus Collection for May will benefit Urban Hope which is the Social Justice Committee’s monthly center of interest. As you know, we visit the 2nd Sunday of most months to take substantial healthy snacks. We also take meals twice a year on the 4th Sunday of the month in October and April. We appreciate your generosity with all of the food donations and the holiday clothing drive. Just like any other social agency, Urban Hope needs financial support as well. We pay for a Peace Keeper and monthly rent for the facility. Urban Hope also provides a Community Garden for the 4th graders at Kentucky School. The children meet once or twice a week to tend the garden and participate in crafts. Money is needed for supplies for this important project. We will NOT be collecting any food for the month of May, and so we will appreciate a financial contribution. It is important to know that all checks need to be designated “FOCUS COLLECTION.” Any cash collected on the first Sunday of the month will go for the Focus Collection without being marked. Cash donated the remaining Sundays go to our general fund.
