August 13th will be the last time Brink’s will be delivering flowers to Zion as they have sold the business.  Our tradition at Zion is no artificial flowers on the altar because the altar represents the sacrifice of Christ and “the use of living flowers and plants, rather than artificial greens, serves as a reminder of the gift of life God has given to the human community.”  At this time we are checking with local florists about the cost of the flowers.  It seems that it will be about $25.00 per vase instead of $27.00 for both vases.  Perhaps two parties sharing the cost of the flowers would be a possibility.  Watch for a final decision from our Worship Board.
