Holiday Greetings from Your Southern Region Staff Team
Dear Southern Region Unitarian Universalists,

Your Southern Region staff team wishes you all the happiest of holidays. We hope that you take time for yourselves and that this season of shorter days brings you rest and rejuvenation. We hope that the coming year brings the world closer to peace, love and justice. We are grateful to you, our partners, in the important work of amplifying those values in a weary world. Thank you. Happy Holidays!

In faith, 
Your Southern Region Staff Team

Holiday Message from UUA President Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray
Tuning in to Our Blessings

This is a season of holidays and holy days, where many of us will gather to share sacred and traditional rituals that reconnect us with community and mark important moments in our lives. Rituals at this time of year, from Kwanzaa and Christmas, Hanukkah, Solstice and New Year’s—these celebrations and more—connect us to the enduring strength of our history and ancestors, inspire us with hope for what is possible, and remind us of the passage of time and tradition over generations. 

Each year of my presidency, it has been a pleasure to create and share a holiday video with you all. It reminds me of the real but unseen threads that connect us across the Association. Please watch and share this new video with your congregation or community during these winter holy days.
