The Joy Sermon Series: Garden Pearls

Garden Pearls

As Earth Day approaches, let us look to nature for inspiration in our daily lives. What wisdom can a garden offer us? As places of growth, gardens are intentional spaces reflecting both inner and outer beauty, serving as portals to gain a deeper understanding of ourselves, nurture our relationships, build meaningful connections with the world around us, and commune with the divine. On Sunday, we’ll explore the history of the Pearl Fryar Topiary Garden located in Bishopville, South Carolina–the garden of Pearl Fryar’s private family home with few “cut-up bushes” and “junk art”–that broke down boundaries of race, class, and education, and transformed them into sacred life lessons on love, peace, and goodwill.

Simone Monique Barnes is the guest speaker and service leader at Wildflower UU Church, Austin, on Sunday, April 16, 2023, 11:45 am Central Time. In this series, Simone focuses on topics and actions that keep us grounded and centered on joy, including tools to help us find our way back to our center when life pulls us in a different direction.

Wildflower UU Church’s centering theme for this service is Nurturing Relationships: Joy – Synergy
