UUFR-VA Sunday Service Schedule

Sara Mackey

August 3 - Sara Mackey:  Creating a Niche

Years of research and planning have brought UUFR-VA to the beginning of a transformative adventure — transformative for the Fellowship, as well as for the community. Join Sara Mackey, and her friend from Family Lifeline in Richmond, as we reflect together on what this new endeavor might hold for us.

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.

Barbara Haynes

August 10 - Barbara Haynes:  The Art of Happiness

What is happiness, anyway? The Dalai Lama says that the purpose of our existence is to seek happiness. We will consider the ideas of philosophers, spiritual leaders, and medical professionals, including the expertise found in our own Fellowship, as we try to understand what this “happiness” thing is all about.

Barbara retired from Henrico County schools where she taught economics, business, and history. She presently serves as an economic education consultant for the Virginia Council on Economic Education located at VCU in Richmond.

Alane Cameron Miles

August 17 - Alane Cameron Miles:  Spirit of Religious Freedom

Alane will blend the topics of independent publishing and radio into a discussion on public prayer in light of the Supreme Court decision of Greece v. Galloway.

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 in hospice and is a freelance writer, and also serves individuals and groups through rites of passage, ethics consultations, spiritual guidance, and teaching.

Hank Stupi

August 24 - Hank Stupi:  Wake Up!

According to Anthony De Mello (Indian Jesuit priest, psychotherapist, spiritual teacher and writer), spirituality means waking up. Most of us are sleepwalking most of the time. Awareness is an eye-opener. About himself, Hank, the music coordinator for the UUFR-VA, says, “I sleep walked through most of my life. It wasn’t until my cancer diagnosis in 2005 that I retired as an accounting professor and began the hard work of waking up.”

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.
