Welcome 

We are welcoming, open and affirming to all. Our services begin at 10:30 a.m. Sundays. Religious exploration for school-age children and childcare for preschoolers are available from September to May. Learn more about us and what happens Sundays at UUFF.

Our growing Unitarian Universalist fellowship is led by Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails, who joined UUFF in September 2015.  About half our Sunday Services are lay led or feature guest speakers, ensuring a diversity of topics and voices.

Peace Like a River

Minister: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails  Music: Holly Fox
As the saying goes, you can never step in the same river twice. Rivers are endlessly changing course, adapting, cutting new pathways and overcoming obstacles. What can the braided rivers that surround our Fairbanks’ home teach us about living in times of uncertainty and change?

Bringing Ourselves to the New Year

Intern Minister: Becca Bernard   Music: Holly Fox
Making New Year’s resolutions is a familiar tradition for many of us, but it can feel stifling, and studies show that very few of us stick with our resolutions for long. How else can we bring to the new year our truest selves and deepest aspirations?

Trying Softer

Minister: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails   Music: Holly Fox
No matter how hard we try, we can’t shame ourselves into growth and change. With gratitude to the book “Try Softer” by Aundi Kolber, Rev. Leslie will share reflections on the soul work of radical acceptance of ourselves and others.

The Courageous Spirit

Minister: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails Music: Holly Fox
“May the Spirit of Courage fill our beings so that when the fears come a-howling we will not feed them our dreams.” – This Sunday will be a program on what it means to be brave when we aren’t quite sure how.

Listen to the Voice Within

Minister: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails
As we enter into a new year, we will spend this sacred hour in the embrace of stillness. Through silence, spoken word, meditation, and song, let us listen to the small, still voice within.

Solstice

Coordinator: Jana Peirce  Performers: Various UUFF Folks
Drawing on both Native American myth and pagan ritual, this non-traditional service begins in darkness with drumming and chanting and ends with the returning of the light as we weave together music and story to call down the sun. This is a multi-generational program, meaning that children of all ages are invited to stay for the entire service. Join us in observing the passing of the winter solstice not intellectually or stoically, but joyously and experientially.

‘Tis the Season for Social Justice

Minister: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails  Music: Marsha Sousa
Many holidays of the winter season — Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and more — celebrate humanity’s yearning for justice and the persistence of hope throughout countless generations. This service will draw wisdom from world religious traditions who share the joy of holiday celebrations around this time.

Curiosity: Life’s own sonic screwdriver?

Coordinator: Jana Peirce  Minister: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails  Music: Marsha Sousa

Dr. Who fans are familiar with the sonic screwdriver: a seemingly ordinary, every day tool  supercharged with vast powers to disarm enemies and to defend and protect the Doctor and his friends. Curiosity is a similarly multipurpose tool with superpowers we do not completely understand. It has the power to disarm fear and anxiety, to engage Daleks (or at least those we disagree with) in difficult conversations, to unlock our own creativity, and to take us into new worlds of knowledge and adventure. We’ll explore how curiosity expands our universe by giving us a tool to quell our demons and opening us up to our inner selves and the world around us.
