UUFR-VA Sunday Service Schedule


March 5 - Tara Wallace:  Help! I'm possessed! When our material possessions overwhelm us.

Tara Wallace, a self-taught professional organizer, will share her personal experience and what she learned while coming to terms with material possessions.

Tara graduated from St. Mary's College of Maryland in 2002 with a Bachelor of Arts in Human Studies. She has lived in the Northern Neck for nine years and is an aspiring writer. Her introduction to Unitarian Universalism took place at UUFR-VA five years ago and she gave her first talk to the fellowship last year. Tara's stand-up comedy and singing acts were big hits at the 2016 Butterfly Club Cabaret, as were her singing performances at the Fellowship Singer musical services for the last two years.

Rev. Alane Cameron-Miles

March 12 - Rev. Alane Cameron-Miles:  Consciousness, Neuroscience, Self-Awareness, and Relating to Life's Big Problems

Part two of a three-part series about the big questions. The cosmos in our heads. Are we the captain or are we the ship? What does science say? What does dying say? What would a religion that understood science, dying, compassion and wonder have to say about the weight of every day being?

Rev. Alane Cameron Miles received a Master of Divinity degree from Union Theological Seminary and has served the UU Community Church in Glen Allen, VA and the First UU Church of Richmond, VA. She works for Hospice of Virginia and is the host of Death Club Radio on Richmond Independent Radio, WRIR 97.3 ( Thursdays at 12:30 PM.

Sara Mackey

March 19 - Sara Mackey:  Renewal

On the eve of the spring equinox, let us come together to remember and celebrate that even when the darkness is deep and discouraging, renewal is real and reliable and part of the natural scheme of things. Renewal cannot be stopped.

Sara Mackey has been a friend of UUFR-VA since her seminary days, when the fellowship was meeting in the Women’s Club down the road. She lives in Richmond and currently works at Union Presbyterian Seminary, where she earned her M.Div. She has served Williamsburg UU as Director of Faith Development, and she has volunteered in many capacities over the years at UU Community Church in Glen Allen.

Dave Dustin

March 26 - Dave Dustin:  Do Unto Others as You Would Have Them to Do Unto You

Dave will explore the roots of Humanism and how we, as a people, went from simply looking out for each other’s general well-being to a formal “religion” with its very own Manifesto.

Dave Dustin holds a BS degree in Computer Science from Maryland University and retired from Johns Hopkins University/Applied Physics Laboratory in 2012 after 38 years of service. During the years of 2000 – 2006 he worked as a cyber-security consultant to the Federal Aviation Administration. He is currently serving on the UUFR-VA Board of Stewards as past-president and as a vice president for the Kids First Foundation. He also volunteers at the White Stone Baptist Church’s Food Pantry, and, along with his wife Terrie, does furniture pick-ups for the Interfaith Service Council.

Assisted Listening Devices Available.

For anyone who might benefit from using an assisted listening device in our services, excellent equipment is available. Both a ceiling mike and a wireless mike provide a good pickup that is sent wirelessly to these devices. See Tom Kinney, Bob Weekley, or Don Lowrey to try one.

Participation and sharing . . . are the strengths of our fellowship.
