Flower Ceremony: Celebrating Community, Diversity, and Black Joy

June 16, 2024

Sometimes referred to as Flower Communion or Flower Festival, the Flower Ceremony is an annual ritual that celebrates beauty, human uniqueness, diversity, and community. In this ceremony, everyone in the congregation brings a flower. We collectively bless the flowers, and they're redistributed, with each person bringing home a different flower than the one they brought. Our flower ceremony coincides this year with the celebration week of Juneteenth. Joy is our human birthright and this month we celebrate the palpable joy felt in our Texas communities and beyond. We celebrate Black Joy as one of the many beautiful flowers that makes our bouquet of Wildflowers complete.


NOTE:  Please bring a flower to the service to share!!

Masks are optional in the sanctuary.

Wildflower Church is a deliberately inclusive, lay-led, 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 for Beloved Community. We meet in South Austin, at our shared campus.

Wildflower Covenant for Beloved Community

The spirit in me welcomes the spirit in you, in all our wholeness and imperfection.

We celebrate our connections and our differences.
We actively seek to create equity as we build relationships with one another.
We care for one another and for ourselves.
We listen to others with respect and open hearts, intending to understand.
We speak to others with respect and kindness, intending to be understood.
We make every effort to settle differences directly and openly.
This beloved community is our spiritual home: we all share our gifts to build it.
We commit to be in covenant and to be called back into covenant.
