Say it with flowers

We are in the midst of Lent but we know that Easter is coming. In our longing for the springing of new life, let’s not forget to fully experience all the moments along the way. There will be moments to cherish and moments which hurt; moments that are life-giving and those which are death-dealing.

Perhaps we can learn from a weed growing through the cracks, willing to risk reaching for the sun, despite the possibility of being crushed - a fragment of life, oblivious to its demeaning name, flowering with beauty anyway.

Just before Easter, pots of spring flowers will be delivered to people in our community, who might need a bit of a lift. We hope that you will participate in this act of caring, by making a donation in “memory or celebration” of special people in your life.

To make a donation please CLICK HERE Write "Easter flowers" in the message box.

To name the people you are remembering, which will be shared in a special Easter eBlast message; please send an email to

Blessings, Karen Dale [in ministry with Beach United Church]
