Please join us on Christmas Eve morning ! We will celebrate the season and each person is invited to make a “Yule Log” similar to the one pictured above. Throughout ancient times in Northern European cultures a Yule Log was burned for the 12 days of Winter Solstice or the Return of the Sun. We will explore more about the Yule Log  a representation of the “Divine Light” many seek this time of year and present across cultures. Please join us to learn more
about this custom and celebrate the season together by making a small, wooden Yule Log to take home! Barb Harrison service leader . All supplies will be provided.  We will also have refreshments available, bring a sweet treat or dish to share !

Special Fund to Assist Evan, Susan, Lauren and William Young – The Young Family has suffered a terrible accident.  Their youngest, William is injured and in need of special support once he comes home from hospital. There is a Go Fund Me account set up for assistance.  If you would like to contribute, we can take a special collection at UUFA –  please put your donation in a sealed envelope and Barb Harrison will see that it gets to the Youngs. If you prefer a non-tech method just leave it with Barb or send along to the fellowship and we will see that it gets to them.  The total need is $80,000.  Here is the link to the Go Fund Me account:
