Water, Wine, Loaves and Fishes - An Easter Sunday Service

- Rev. Diane Rollert, with music by Sandra Hunt, Gary Russell, the Phoenix Community Choir, led by Eleuthera Diconca-Lippert and guests

According to the gospel, Jesus transformed water into wine and multiplied a few loaves of bread and a couple of fish into enough food to feed thousands. These were among the many miracle stories that made our Unitarian ancestors wary as they chose to celebrate the religion “of” Jesus rather than a religion “about” Jesus. In this Easter and Passover season, what can we each reclaim from these challenging and powerful stories of transformation? 

11:45 a.m. Easter Communion
For the past 176 years, this congregation has observed communion at least twice a year. It is a tradition that was so important to past generations that it was written into our By-Laws to be observed on the Sunday closest to All Souls Day and on Easter Sunday. Today we celebrate a simple bread and wine communion to honour our roots. The communion service begins immediately following the regular service and is entirely optional. Everyone is welcome.
