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.
Lift Our Hearts To The Stars!
July 23, 2017
Guest Speaker: Jason Crow
Come celebrate the transcendent wonder and mystery of our sky, as we visit themes of space exploration, science fiction, and the interdependent web of existence. Wildflower Church member Jason Crow will be leading this worship service which aims to both inform and uplift--from a lay-person’s point of view— and there will be music! Space music! In church! As Unitarian Universalists, we are called upon to listen to science and the arts with all our hearts; to forever question; to use the gifts of technology with grace and gratitude. We also tend to be bookworms. Right? At Wildflower Church, we honor that truth and wear it proudly, so: come and flock together as nerds of a feather!
Jason Crow is a second-generation Austin musician and a lifetime student of music. Born just 98 days before the launch of the final NASA Apollo mission to the moon, Jason developed a passion for anything related to space exploration and science fiction at a very early age! His parents nurtured that passion, often by using the family's noisy, top-loading VCR to record all manner of space-related TV programming, such as the first launch of the space shuttle, which occurred after 7-year-old Jason's bedtime. He currently serves Wildflower Church as a musician, lay worship leader, and Worship Team member, and is grateful to have served as one of Wildflower's delegates to the 2017 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association in New Orleans.
