Small Groups / Chalice Circles
Contact / Organizer: Dr Ray Macfarlane, DrRay@AnchorageUUF.org
Small Groups take many forms, and are designed to bring members, friends, and community members closer to one another by cultivating deeper connections. Small groups and Chalice Circles connect UUs on a deeper level. Groups of 12 or less meet regularly (often weekly) for a defined period (for example, 8-10 weeks) to reflect and discuss significant life topics. The time together is structured and may include a chalice lighting, focused readings, and a moment of centering silence before participants share their perspectives, tell their stories and listen deeply. New groups are starting up now. Please use this link to sign up!
