Wildflower Church is a deliberately inclusive, open-minded religious community in the Unitarian Universalist tradition, growing spiritually together, spreading love, justice, and joy! We create our community by covenanting one to another, using our Covenant of Right Relations. We meet in South Austin, at our shared campus.
Our Body Keeps a Score: Coping With Trauma
March 26, 11:30 AM
Brian Ferguson, Minister
Psychological Trauma damages our psyche as a result of a severely distressing event. Many of us are familiar with the impact of post-combat trauma on military personnel, post-abuse trauma for victims of sexual or physical assault, and post-event trauma for victims of disasters. Trauma can raise profound spiritual and emotional questions. We can often think about trauma as an individual experience but what about our response to trauma as a community. This worship service will explore the spiritual concerns of trauma and how a religious community can respond to the spiritual and emotional questions raised.

Curious to know more about Unitarian Universalism? Want to know what Wildflower Church is all about? Are you ready to become a member? No matter your interest, all are invited to the orientation this Sunday, March 26 from 1:30-3:30pm in the Wildflower Community Room.
Lunch is provided, as is child care upon request. To reserve a place and/or inquire further, ask Mary Ober or email the membership team.
Are you shopping for a church home that doesn’t require commitment to any specific metaphysical beliefs? Unitarian Universalism is a non-credal religion that draws wisdom from many religions, literature, art, and science, and interprets it through a concrete set of principles. We believe in Standing on the Side of Love for all the world’s people. You can explore the covenant, mission, values, and vision of Wildflower online.
Join us for food, drinks, and LIVE music at the Wildflower Church House Concert Spring Fundraiser. This event will be held on Sunday, March 26th, at 5:30pm at the home of Terry and Dagmar Grieder. And you don’t have to be a Wildflower member to attend.
The Medlers, featuring members from the award-winning Austin Lounge Lizards, will perform live to help us raise funds for the Wildflower Church community. And to make your evening even more amazing, tasty hors d’oeuvres, cold beer, wine, as well as non-alcoholic drinks will be served. More information.
