How do we find the strength and determination to keep ourselves mentally and physically well as we age? Having a higher self, and taking the time to reflect on it, can help.

He is a member of the Board of Directors of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. He is the author of "The Uncertain Believer: Reconciling God And Science", "Teaching Your Child About God In A Scientific World", and two novels, "The George Washington Constellation" and "Elysia".

Lynne Larson

July 16 - Lynne Larson:  Your Dream Wisdom

Lynne Larson will offer a program on listening to dreams and how to tap into your inner wisdom through guided imagery. What do St. Francis of Assisi, Harriet Tubman, Salvador Dali, Paul McCartney and Jack Nicklaus have in common? Their dreams changed their lives! Join us to learn about listening to your own dreams and opening up to your inner wisdom.

Lynne Larson, M.A. has been formally trained in spiritual direction, MBTI and Integrated Imagery (regression/progression method). With over 40 years of dream study and listening to thousands of dreams, Lynne Larson teaches and conducts dream workshops and works with individuals privately. Her practice in centering prayer and interest in the mystics led her to offer programs on Julian of Norwich, Celtic Spirituality and mindfulness stress reduction. In 2004 she established Retreats to offer seekers a time to set aside the demands of everyday life, and come together for rest and spiritual renewal. She sees in ancient spiritual traditions a modern approach to heal the human condition through the constant reminder that God thirsts for us, loves us without blame, and is present in all. Lynne makes her home in Virginia Beach and is a member of Church of the Holy Apostles, an ecumenical Roman Catholic and Episcopal congregation established in 1977 by Catholic and Episcopal bishops, and has been a long time member of the Association for Research and Enlightenment (Edgar Cayce foundation).

Ruth Micklem and Kristi VanAudenhove

July 23 - Ruth Micklem and Kristi VanAudenhove:  Standing on the Side of Love

Standing on the Side of Love is an interfaith public advocacy campaign initiated by the Unitarian Universalist Association in 2009 to promote respect for the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Standing on the Side of Love confronts issues of exclusion, oppression, and violence based on identity. With the goal of creating beloved community, the campaign pursues social change through advocacy, public witness, and speaking out in solidarity with those whose lives are publicly demeaned. The core issues of focus include, but are not limited to: LGBTQ equity, immigrant justice, racial justice and intersectional movement building.

Ruth and Kristi will talk about why this campaign is so important and invite Fellowship members to Stand with and Love those members of our community who are most at risk for violence and oppression.

Ruth Micklem and Kristi VanAudenhove were married in the UUFR-VA sanctuary in July of 2014 on their 25th anniversary. Together they have shared in the joys and the challenges of raising 4 children—and now they are lucky enough to be part of the lives of those children, their partners, and 5 exceptional grandchildren. They have shared in the leadership of policy advocacy for social change to end sexual and domestic violence and to bring about a world in which people of all ages genders, races, and sexual orientations have the opportunity to thrive. As founding members of UUFR-VA they have been involved in many different ways over the years. Ruth currently serves as the President of the Board of Stewards and Kristi coordinates the UUKids program.
