Playing With the Italians - Memorial Day Sunday
The Reverend Edward Frost wrote this sermon, a winner of the 2006 Borden Prize for Best Sermon by a UU minister, after a long-buried incident from his World War II boyhood came to him as an adult.
Longtime Wildflower member Helen Burnette will read the sermon and veterans present in the congregation will be recognized with a ceremony.

Meeting at 1314 E Oltorf St (Faith Presbyterian)
Wildflower Church is a deliberately inclusive, open-minded religious community in the Unitarian Universalist tradition, growing spiritually together, spreading love, justice, and fun! We create our community by covenanting one to another, using our Covenant of Right Relations.
We are pleased to announce our new Serenity Service, an interfaith service of music, readings, and silence, debuting Friday, May 15th at 7:00pm in the Sanctuary at 1314 E Oltorf St (Faith Presbyterian), and held every third Friday of the month.
Wildflower's 2020 Vision Quest has entered its reflection phase. The Vision and Goals Task Force integrated people's personal visions for Wildflower into themes that were the focus of the Gathering on Sunday, April 12. We have taken what emerged from the Gathering and drafted a Wildflower's 2020 collective Vision and Preliminary Strategic Goals. View these now! We want to thank everyone who participated by sharing their visions and dreams for Wildflower Church. Watch our video of people's visions captured during the Vision Quest.
Austin Tan Cerca de la Frontera/Austin So Close to the Border, May 29 – 31, 2015
You are invited to join a delegation to Mexico at the border in solidarity with maquiladora (duty-free factory) workers organized by Austin Tan Cerca de la Frontera. Since 1999 ATCF has visited the communities and homes of maquiladora workers organizing with the Comité Fronterizo de Obreras/os (CFO or Workers Border Committee), a grassroots Mexican organization. We learn from their resilience and creativity as they confront the “free trade” policies of governments and transnational corporations. Currently CFO special projects include a democratic union where none existed before, and ongoing gender rights workshops for women. More details in Social Justice.
