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

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.

Dave Dustin

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.

Cliff Schelling

September 21 - Cliff Schelling:  Women’s Wisdom

Women have been disadvantaged throughout most of our species history. Rarely have they had the freedom, power and options usually available to men. To survive, many women have developed qualities that were not as necessary to the dominant group, which are now necessary for all of us.

Cliff is the president of a coaching and consulting company, that has been helping clients achieve personal fulfillment, professional competence and business results for twenty-seven years.
