Our growing Unitarian Universalist fellowship is led by a part-time minister, Rev. Tracy Springberry, who travels to Fairbanks five times each year from her home in eastern Washington and is available for consultation and pastoral care between visits as well. Other services are lay led or feature guest ministers, ensuring a diversity of topics and voices.
Lay Leader: Danny Swisher Speaker: Kim Swisher
In a world where we are fatigued from information overload and social media, we long for ways to nurture and feed our souls. We seek. One of our guiding principles, the free and responsible search for truth and meaning, offers us support to seek, but many of us UU’s still haven’t found what we are looking for. How do we find it? This service will revisit the words of Rev. Robert M. Hardies of the All Souls Unitarian Church. His sermon from January 5, 2014 provides some insight on how to find what we seek on Sunday morning.
Lay Leader: Jana Peirce Speaker: Rev. Tracy Springberry
Francis David wrote this statement over 500 years ago at the beginning of the Unitarian faith. The question today is do UUs think alike? And if we don’t, can we still love alike?
Lay Leader: Laurie Walton Speaker: Rev. Tracy Springberry
We all get hurt as we walk through life. How do we forgive? Should we forgive?

Coordinator: Jeanne Olson Accompanist: Vera Alexander
In this age of green giving, when many of us have accumulate way tooooooooo much stuff, regifting is a fun opportunity to be green in our Green Sanctuary. So today we’re reviving our green multigenerational regifting program. Bring a wrapped gift of something (no fair buying something special for this day) you just need to pass on. It’s silly, yet meaningful. Fun, yet serious. And, oh yes, may we be wearing green in solidarity of the season and of the intent. P.S. Other important details: Kids gifts should be marked as age appropriate. Bring wrapped gifts throughout December even if you can’t attend this program. Any extras will be donated within our community. Leftover snacks? Please share them during coffee hour.
Chalice Circles will be back at UUFF starting this January. One of our most popular programs, Chalice Circle provide the opportunity to make deeper connections with each other than are possible on Sunday mornings alone and to talk about the things that matter most to us.

For most of us the holidays are full of expectations. We want them to be fun and joyful. However, the Buddha taught that wants and expectations are the road to suffering. Might that be a problem?
Lay Leader: Barbara Clark Speaker: Rev. Tracy Springberry
