ZOOM ONLY: Have Faith in Nights: Joy through the struggle, rest in the resistance

December 11, 2022

Beloved ancestor Maya Angelou declared "Surviving is necessary. Thriving is elegant." Grounded in the belief that all people have inherent power and dignity, the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) partners with with frontline grassroots movements across the world for our collective survival and the hope of thrival. Join us in a service of joy through the struggle, rest in the resistance with the Rev. Deanna Vandiver, Director of Justice Education with the UUSC and an affiliated community minister of love and liberation with the Church of the Larger Fellowship UU.

Deanna Vandiver lives with her partner on the land of the Coastal Salish people known as the Suquamish, “the people of the clear salt water" and is an auntie to many beloveds across an ever-increasing span of generations. Deeply grateful to the People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond (pisab.org) for shaping their core understandings of how systemic racism dehumanizes all of us, Deanna finds sustaining joy by the water and magical possibilities in every glue stick, garden, and collaboration.

Children and Youth Religious Education classes will not be held this Sunday.

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.
