Norm Mosher

March 29 - Norm Mosher:  A History of the Philosophy of Happiness

Norm will explore where and when happiness emerged as a concept for living, when and why it was lost, when it was restored in our lives, and the threats to it now.

Norm Mosher is a retired Navy Captain who commanded ships in the Atlantic and the Pacific. After retirement from the Navy, he served as a Professional Staff member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. Following that, he started his own company advising companies on shipbuilding and marine propulsion, and institutions engaged in ocean scientific research. Norm has a BA from Boston University and an MA in International Relations and a Masters of Arts in Law and Diplomacy from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.

April 5 - The UU Kids:  Celebrating with Eggs

The UU Kids will explore and celebrate the history and traditions surrounding the connection between Easter and Eggs. We will all participate in a Blessing of the Eggs and in a very special Easter Egg Hunt. Please join us for a unique service led by three eggseptional young people! Please bring a decorated, hard-boiled egg with you to the service.

Mike Knez

April 12 - Mike Knez:  Conscious Discipline: First a Discipline Program for Adults, then Children

Mike will overview the discipline program used in preschool classrooms in the Bridges Head Start program. Conscious Discipline® develops discipline within children rather than applying discipline to them; teaches lifelong skills rather than just managing behavior in the short term; and is relevant to anyone interested in learning a way of being, not just a way of being with children.

Mike lives in Middlesex County. He is a father, grandfather and husband. He has worked the past three years as a family advocate for Bridges Head Start, which serves the Middle Peninsula. Before that he worked at the Middle Peninsula-Northern Neck Community Services Board as a Family and Youth Educator, Mental Health Recovery Specialist, and Behavioral Specialist.

Margaret Sequeira

April 19 - Margaret M. Sequeira:  Faith and Doubt

Faith requires doubt and life requires faith. We often talk about faith and about doubt but what do those words mean? What is faith? How do we balance faith and doubt? What does faith require? Come as we explore the meaning and relationship between faith and doubt.

Margaret M. Sequeira, MTS, serves as the Consulting Minister for the UU Congregation of the Outer Banks in Kitty Hawk, NC. She is a candidate for Unitarian Universalist Ministry and has a Masters of Theological Studies in Ethics and Social Theory. She also blogs regularly at

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.
