Love Thy Neighbor

Speaker: Rev. Shirley Lee  Lay Leader: Lisa Sporleder

Rev. Shirley Lee will offer us an update on the Tanana Chiefs Conference Sobering Center. During the winter of 2007-2008, six people froze to death on the streets of Fairbanks due to being intoxicated and having nowhere safe to go. The new Sobering Center offers a place for intoxicated people to sober up for 12 hours in safety and warmth, and a chance to connect with the medical and social services they need. She will also be updating us on how the fellowship can continue to show up in solidarity with the Fairbanks Four, a group of young native men who were wrongfully incarcerated for 18 years.
