The Mission of the Christian Affinity Group is to make available Unitarian Universalist Christian gatherings for the purpose of discussing Christian theology through a UU lens and sharing it with others at UUFB.
The Group sponsors hymn sings and book discussion. The focus for 2017 presentations and discussions is, “Faith Based Decision –Making.” Five programs on the following topics are planned: The Amish Faith, The Catholic Faith, Religious Dress, Unitarian Universalist Association, and Buddhism. All programs are open to UUFB members and friends.
