Flowering of the Cross

by Vicki Karsten

At St. George’s we have a tradition of Flowering the Cross for Easter.  This is an ancient tradition among Christians.  As worshipers bring beautiful, live, fragrant flowers to adorn the cross, eventually the cross becomes covered in a brilliant array of color, light and lovely fragrance. A symbol of death, darkness, pain and hopelessness is transformed into something beautiful, new and alive in celebration of the Resurrection of Christ. Together, we can transform the cross and help make this Easter a celebration of new life.

We look forward once more to the Flowering the Cross on Easter Sunday, April 16 at both the 9:00 am and 10:30 am services.

Please bring any flowers that day that you have to share in this beautiful tradition.  All members of the congregation will be invited to participate in decorating the cross on Easter as a part of the service.easter cross
