The religious meaning of Christmas can get lost in the secular celebrations and overwhelming consumerism of the Holiday Season. In the Christian tradition the Incarnation, meaning the Divine taking Human Form, is a powerful and meaningful religious idea. The Unitarian side of our tradition has emphasized how we are “created in the image of God” with each of us containing the spark of the divine within us. This worship service will explore these ideas and how they can still be meaningful to our Unitarian Universalist faith in the 21st Century.
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 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.
What is Unitarian Universalism?
On this Christmas Eve, we will honor the Christian story of the birth of Jesus. Many of us feel the Christmas story is so familiar that new meaning can seem hard to find. Perhaps much of the comfort of the Christmas story is its familiarity. This joint inter-generational Christmas Eve service will explore and honor the Christian story of the birth of Jesus.
This will be a joint worship service between Faith Presbyterian and Wildflower. As part of the worship service there will be a Christina Communion ritual and Faith has a freely open communion table for all people and anyone who wish may participate in this ritual.
