UUFR-VA Sunday Service Schedule

Hank Stupi

August 24 - Hank Stupi:  Wake Up!

According to Anthony De Mello (Indian Jesuit priest, psychotherapist, spiritual teacher and writer), spirituality means waking up. Most of us are sleepwalking most of the time. Awareness is an eye-opener. About himself, Hank, the music coordinator for the UUFR-VA, says, “I sleep walked through most of my life. It wasn’t until my cancer diagnosis in 2005 that I retired as an accounting professor and began the hard work of waking up.”

Shirley Kinney

August 31 - Shirley Kinney:  We Got a Dream

Shirley will interview the last of our group of $100 recipients to find out how they gave away their money. Last November, Bob Weekley and Shirley surprised ten people in the congregation by handing them an envelope with a $100 bill in it. Their task was to give away that $100 to make a difference in someone's life. We've heard from seven of the donors so far, who have given their money to the Haven, to the Kids First Foundation, to our UUFR building expansion fund, to one high school boy who needed the correct shoes to be on the track team. Now we'll discover who the other recipients are. What would YOU do with that $100?


September 7 - Bryna Brennan:  Help Is A Four-Legged Word

Bryna will talk about her involvement in Canine Companions for Independence, a non-profit organization founded in 1975 that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships. Canine Companions is the largest non-profit provider of assistance dogs, and is recognized worldwide for the excellence of its dogs, and the quality and longevity of the matches it makes between dogs and people.

Bryna is a former foreign correspondent with involvement in the Pan-American Health Organization. She studied International Relations at Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies.

September 14 - Dave Dustin:  Looking for Nirvana (in all the wrong places)

We are born perfect…not with original sin as some would have us to believe. From there we are subjected to a myriad of influences, parents, teachers, and friends being just some of the more important. Somehow, through all these influences, the idea is implanted in our heads that somewhere out there is a perfect life. That’s where our search begins!

Dave retired from Johns Hopkins University/Applied Physics Laboratory in 2012 after 38 years of service. He is currently serving as the president of the UUFR and as a Vice President for the newly established Kids First Foundation. He also volunteers at the White Stone Baptist Church’s Food Pantry.

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.
