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.
Caring For Our Greatest Gift
May 21, 11:30 AM
Rev. Brian Ferguson
We often talk about our lives being a great gift - a gift from nature or our parents or our creator or the Universe. What about the gift without which our lives would not be possible - our Planet? There may be different religious stories of how our planet came to be but religions throughout the word say the appropriate religious response is gratitude, best expressed through appreciation and caring for our planet. Much of our human attitude towards our planet does not show care or reverence but view it as an infinite resource to be exploited and treated as a commodity. This worship service will explore how religion has historically reinforced this dangerous exploitation and how a major cultural shift is required to address the very serious problem of climate change.

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.
Semi-Annual Congregational Meeting
The semi-annual congregational meetings are how we conduct the business of this church. In our June meeting, we will vote on incoming Board members as well as some important decisions about the future of our church. Childcare and lunch will be provided. Join us on Sunday, June 4, at 1 PM in the Wildflower Community Room.
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.
