"Flower Communion: Celebrating our Diversity” Stephani Skalak

Date

The first Flower Ceremony was held in Prague, in June 1923, led by Rev. Norbert Čapek. For decades, this beloved tradition and its powerful history has welcomed Spring and provided meaning to hundreds of UU congregations. You are invited to bring a flower of some kind whether real or representational. What kind of beautiful bouquet can we make together?

Our service will be led by Stephani Skalak, who has been welcomed into preliminary fellowship by the UUA to become a UU minister. Stephani will reflect on how we can find spiritual discipline in our Unitarian Universalist “cafeteria style” tradition which draws from so many diverse inspirations?

Stephani Skalak has a Master of Divinity from the UU seminary Meadville Lombard and is currently a chaplain resident at Providence Portland Medical Center. In her career to date she has been an educator, an artist, and an activist. She has more than fifteen years of experience teaching media literacy and video production to youth and adults alike, encouraging them to use their voices for change. Earlier in her career, she worked for the Peace Corps both as HQ staff and as a volunteer in West Africa. Her undergraduate degree is in International Relations from The American University in Washington, DC. Stephani has experience in small group ministry within the UU tradition and has had a life-long love of learning other cultures. She lives in Portland, with her love, Mark, and their two teenage children, Kai and Seneca.
