Unitarian Universalists are boundlessly curious about the world’s religions and happily celebrate many winter holidays. Fifteen years ago, a group of young adult UU seminarians began to yearn aloud for a holiday celebration that would be our own thing, not to supplant or compete with the other joyous celebrations, but to proclaim our own faith and explore its embodied practice. Our Interim Minister, the Rev. Lisa Romantum Schwartz, has been an enthusiastic Chalica lover for years, and she’s glad to introduce the tradition to UUFA.
Our monthly theme, Interpretation, allows us to explore stories ancient and modern and open the door to discern many points of view as we flow into this season of darkness and light.
