A wildflower meadow was planted in 2012 at Phillips Theological Seminary, next to the labyrinth.  Some flowers survived the summer drought, some flowers struggled, and still others died. The word “seminary” means “seed plot,” and Phillips is planting seeds to make its contribution to the renewal of Christianity as a movement. The seminary is cultivating students by encouraging new growth in a variety of ways, planting different seeds through new programs and being mindful that what grows is not necessarily what Phillips thought was planted. 

The Phillips Wildflower Sanctuary was officially dedicated on Friday, May 17, 2013, by Dr. Gary Peluso-Verdend, President, in the presence of the Board of Trustees, 2013 graduands, students, faculty, staff, friends and guests. Many sowed new wildflower seeds near the dedication site and sign commemorating the event. The sanctuary has a walking path for guests to explore the many colors and varieties of flowers that live in the meadow.

In the spring and early summer, there is new growth abloom in this peaceful place. We invite you to visit anytime. Take a moment to see what's blooming at 901 North Mingo Road, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. You may be surprised by what you find growing at the seminary, and not just in the meadow.

in service of intelligent, just, and compassionate religious and civic communities. We welcome
students to a safe space for truth-seeking conversations about the Bible, Jesus, and faithful living.
