Tom Kinney

April 27 - Tom Kinney:  Stories about "OUR" kids -- the inspiration of changing lives with an 80 year impact -- a genocide in the making

Tom presents a scintillating title for a titillating talk.

Founding member Tom has served UUFR-VA as President, Finance Chair, and Planning Chair.

Sara Mackey

May 4 - Sara Mackey:  The Wrong Ones

In folklore and in the Christian sacred text, we frequently find themes that center on the wrong people -- strangers, unsavory people, sinners. Join us as we explore what we can learn about ourselves and our world from these stories of the wrong ones.

Sara Mackey, a frequesnt UUFR-VA speaker, 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.


May 11 - Connie Ralston:  Find And Express Our Own Innate Rhythm

Connie has been an active part of the local drumming community for over 25 years, facilitating participatory sessions which provide fun, exercise, and music to groups from nursery schools to nursing homes and hospitals, scouts, 4-H groups, Boys and Girls Clubs, camps, retreats, schools, churches, and agencies. Connie will be joined by Terri Watson to help us find and express our own innate rhythm!

May 18 - Caroline Shifflett and Kristi VanAudenhove:  Embracing the Spirit of the Child in Our Midst

Join us as we raise an important question: Do we have a culture and atmosphere which is multigenerational in nature and family-friendly in order to meet the complex needs of today's families with children and youth? With so many stresses and competing events drawing families in different directions, we need to consider just what our Fellowship offers to support and enrich the spirits of the children within us and the children around us.

Caroline has been an active member of the UUFR since 2003, is a former President, and has served in many leadership roles. Kristi has been involved in religious education for kids at Williamsburg UU and in a prior iteration of the UUFR-VA.

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.
