May 1 - Dr. Richard Cutler:  What Is Human Aging Process and What Can Be Done About It?"

Dr. Richard G. Cutler received a Master’s and Doctor’s degree in Biophysics from the University of Houston and has specialized in the field of biogerontology. Among other positions, he has been a research scientist for the Gerontology Research Center of the National Institute on Aging, National Institutes of Health in Baltimore, Maryland; and president and scientific director of the Kronos Science Laboratory in Phoenix, Arizona.

Over the past few years Richard has been working with his colleagues with the goal of establishing that the human aging processes are indeed reversible and moreover that this reversal is surprising simple to achieve.

Sara Mackey

May 8 - Sara Mackey:  Maximize Your Manure

This headline, found in a farming newspaper’s ad section, was somewhat startling, but it has some remarkable theological implications. Come join us and Sara Mackey to reflect on what it might mean to maximize our manure, and how the Universe might be calling us to literally and spiritually change our world by doing that.

Sara Mackey has been a friend of UUFR-VA since her seminary days, when the fellowship was meeting in the Women’s Club down the road. She 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.

Tom Kinney

May 15 - Tom Kinney:  Sometimes the Problem with Them is Us - Choosing Sides of a Chasm vs. Building Bridges

Tom will examine the sordid sorting challenge

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

Rev. Alane Cameron Miles

May 22 - Rev. Alane Cameron Miles:  If Theology Were Taught Through Music: Who Would God Be?

Alane has a vintage gospel and classical music collection she carries to patients. She lets them choose what to play. In their choices she learns what they believe far better than what they say. She will discuss this process and bring examples. Warning: there will be a turntable. If you are too young to know what that is: look it up.

Rev. Alane Cameron Miles 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.

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.
