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. Learn more about the history of Wildflower.

The Gifts of Discomfort
September 24, 2017
Rev. Brian Ferguson
A wise middle school girl recently said to me "sometimes to make others comfortable, we need to be uncomfortable." Much of our focus in life is to provide comfort for ourselves and those we care about. Many of us come to our religious community seeking comfort and at times that is appropriate. Yet discomfort is at the root of growth, learning, and transformation for most people. Discomfort can signal something is wrong about circumstances which require something to change. This worship service will explore how discomfort can be a gift inviting us to seek a new path or transform the circumstances around us.

Our children’s religious education program serves babies and children through 18 years. We provide childcare every Sunday from 9:30 am to 1 pm for children 1-4 years of age. Children age 4 and above may begin in the Pre-K class when they are developmentally ready. Grades 2-5 attend class together, and youth from 6th-12 grades. Currently, infants remain with their parents. Childcare is available for all ages from 9:30-11:30 am and during Sunday afternoon meetings when requested.
