In "Love Surrounds Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Meet at the chosen place. Introduce participants to one another. Set up a small centering table with a chalice and a vase for flowers on a table, night stand, or hospital tray. Conduct the service, using Handout 1, Flower Ceremony Service.
If anyone, including the people you are visiting, has mobility limitations, partner a child with them to bring and then to choose a flower for them.
Do not put anyone on the spot to read aloud. Give reading volunteers the handout well in advance of this activity, and be ready to read any part should a volunteer suddenly decide to pass.
Arrange carpooling that leaves from your congregation so anyone wishing to participate has transportation.
