With special guest, Ginger Doss. 2020 has been a year unlike any other. But within its challenges are great teachings and opportunities. Even though we have had to social distance and isolate ourselves, we can still find comfort and strength through our connections. Nurturing our compassion for one another through mindful practice can build unseen bridges that span across any distance and can nourish us in a time when we might otherwise feel so alone. 2020 is a journey we have taken together, and we can heal together as well, no matter how far apart we are.

Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Fayetteville!
We believe in a connected universe, a spirit greater than ourselves, and the fallibility of human beings as we explore the mysteries of life together.

Contact Stephanie Bentley with specific questions.This week our focus is on,”Healing by Telling the Truth of Thanksgiving.” When it comes to healing, so many brave and wise voices have lifted up the importance of telling the true history of Thanksgiving. This search for the true history is reflected in our Fourth Principle: “A Free and Responsible Search for Truth and Meaning” and our Eighth Principle: “journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that dismantle racism and other oppression in ourselves and our institutions.” Our faith has taken up this work and called on white UU’s to be especially vigilant about the work of correcting stories that have caused harm. So what’s one of the ways our faith guides us into becoming a people of healing? It says, “Learn and tell our true history!”Read this history of Thanksgiving from the Native American point-of-view.This map shows the percent of Indigenous persons in the U.S.
