Remembering What I Knew Before I Learned Better

Speaker: Lisa Sporleder  Music: Marsha Sousa

We grow up with family wisdom, innate wisdom, learned wisdom, and lots of other kinds. We learn new information based on information we have already been taught. But is that always the right direction for our thoughts to take? Does learning in one direction mean we are going in the right direction?

We offer both in-person and online opportunities to attend the service. If you wish to join us online, use the zoom links below:

“In Praise of the Transfer Site (Whale Coast)”

Minister: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails   Music: Marsha Sousa

In Fairbanks, the transfer site is a vital piece of infrastructure, a cornerstone of community resilience, and a cornucopia of treasures. What wonders have you found at your local transfer site? How has it helped you to live a more resourceful, sustainable life? This service will also explore issues of class and the needs of unhoused individuals in the Golden Heart City.

Body Politics

Minister: Rev Leslie Ahuvah Fails   Music: Marsha Sousa
“We’re told to hide, to disappear, to blend the best we can. To kill pieces of ourselves so that someone else may think we’re ok. But we are ok. We’re better than ok. We’re beautiful.” — Rev. KC Slack

Your body is a miracle that has carried you through times of joy and heartbreak, illness and health. So why is it so hard for many of us to love our bodies? Rev. Leslie will draw wisdom from her own experience as well as Unitarian Universalist thought leaders in the body positivity movement to honor what Elea Kemler calls our “soul’s address.”

The Dance of Life

Speaker: Merry Stockwell  Music: Marsha Sousa

We will look at life as a dance this week. Dancing involves learning the steps and then practicing. So does life. As UU’s what steps have we learned and how do we practice them? (And just in case you are tensing up, attending the service will not require any real dancing.)

Speaker:
Merry Stockwell served as a DRE in UU churches for 25 years. She resides in N.H. and puts on Sunday Services in the winter for a UU Fellowship in the Virgin Islands. For much her adult life she wanted to come to Alaska and fulfilled her dream in 2016 when she came on the Whalecoast tour. She has formed a deep fondness for this Fellowship and the folks here and this makes her ninth trip to Alaska.

Woven into a Single Garment of Destiny

Minister: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails Homily: Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray  Music: Marsha Sousa

We’re all connected: an interdependent whole. Therefore, says Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray, “covenant is our religious response to our fundamental interdependence.” We make promises about how to be together, and how to be in the world. We also fall short of honoring those promises, inviting us to repair and strengthen the strands of community. The choice to mend broken strands of the web is an act of faithfulness.
