Lee Anne Washington

August 2 - Lee Anne Washington :  A Woman of Valor

.“ Lee Anne will explore one of the biblical bases for the saying, “Behind every great man, there’s an even greater woman!”: the idealized image of womanhood found in the poem, A Woman of Valor, a poem which is recited by every observant Jewish husband to his wife on the Sabbath. Lee Anne will explore the social, political, and economic model suggested by the poem and its implications for today’s women.

Lee Anne has been an attorney, author, and educator for more than 25 years. Lee Anne is currently in her second year of seminary, attending Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond, VA in pursuit of a Masters in Divinity and ordination as a Unitarian Universalist minister. She is the author of “The Human Life Equation, A Biblical Case for Choice”.

Sara Mackey

August 9 - Sara Mackey:  Pirates and Possums: Considering Fear

If you have to be afraid of something, pirates and possums might be two reasonable things to be afraid of — or maybe not. Come join us and Sara Mackey for a reflection on the pervasive presence of fear in our culture, and the spiritual practice of freeing oneself from the power of fear.

Sara 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.

Bob Weekley

August 16 - Bob Weekley:  Can You Have Religion Without God?

Can you truly have religion without a belief in a God? Is unbelief a belief? What is an atheist, anyway? You might find some surprises in this discussion about the essence of religion.

Bob is a retired career U.S. Army officer and international business executive. He is the past-president and a long time member of UUFR-VA. He and his wife Elaine moved to Lancaster from Arlington in 1998.

Alane Cameron Miles

August 23 - Alane Cameron Miles:  American Neighborhood

Where is our trust? Who is our safety? - What does being a neighbor mean now? It's a cultural, philosophical, and spiritual question requiring us to look inward at who we think we are and outward at who we show ourselves to be in the world.

Alane 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, is a Chaplain and Bereavement Counselor for New Century Hospice and is also the host of Death Club Radio on Richmond Independent Radio, WRIR 97.3.
