Hank Stupi

July 5 - Hank Stupi:  The Gifts Of Imperfection

Research professor and author Brene Brown writes, “Let go of who you think you’re supposed to be and embrace who you are.” Hank will discuss if it is possible to view our flaws as our greatest gifts.

A member of the fellowship since 2009, Hank is the music coordinator for Sunday services at the UUFR. He worked as a CPA for 10 years before spending 3 years as an ASE certified automotive technician. After a back injury he became a professor at Montgomery College in Rockville, Maryland where he taught accounting (and occasionally automotive technology) for 23 years. Hank retired and moved to Middlesex County with his wife, Nancy, in 2006.

July 12 - Celane Roden:  The Challenges and Gifts of Social Transformation

Celane will explore issues of social justice and disability, and thirty years of hard-fought battles leading to a shining example of national social transformation in disability policy and practice. Central to the talk are the visionaries with the courage to stay the course, fighting from their own experience with disability and commitment to change.

Celane retired with her husband Hank to Middlesex County in 2008. Her 30 year career was in federal public policy, first as legislative staffer in the U.S. House of Representatives, followed by years in public policy advocacy for disability related issues.


July 19 - Eddie Correia:  The Role of Prayer

What is prayer? Does it change things? The answers depend on our understanding of God and the nature of the universe.

Eddie is a Washington, D.C. attorney and a university professor. He has worked for the Senate Judiciary Committee and served in the Clinton Administration as Special Counsel to the President for Civil Rights in the White House. 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.

July 26 - Rev. Laura Jackson:  Christ Consciousness

What is Christ Consciousness? The topic is vast and holds different meanings for people. Jesus is most commonly associated with Christ Consciousness, yet it’s found many places, including Buddha’s writings and Edgar Cayce’s Readings.

Rev. Laura will share what the evolving term “Christ Consciousness” means in a whole new era on our planet and how it may be unfolding in your life. Rev. Laura Jackson is a speaker, author, coach and musician. While Laura is emerging as a nationally-recognized speaker on Earth Changes, she speaks on many topics, bridging Edgar Cayce's readings and ancient prophecies with modern science and quantum physics.

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.

Participation and sharing . . . are the strengths of our fellowship.
