Phood and Philosophy

Join our potluck dinner and discussion. The Sunday Bulletin and our monthly newsletter, The Chalice, provide advance notice of the topic, date, time, place and directions. Bring a dish to pass and a bottle of wine to share. A call to the hosts that you are coming helps them to prepare for the expected crowd.

 

Imagine That!

They regularly sell their creations at local venues, and annually donate a decorated Christmas tree to support the Kilmarnock YMCA's Festival of Trees fundraiser.

UUFR-VA Lay-Pastoral Care Program

Challenges come our way in life. Some are manageable, while others leave us feeling very alone and overwhelmed. Lay-Pastoral Care will provide, upon request, personal & confidential support to those enduring grieving, illness, injury, disability, marital changes, unemployment, relocation, caregiving, isolation, inability to attend church or other life situations.

How Can You Receive Lay Pastoral Care?

Call one of our Lay-Pastoral Care Associates: Diana Jamison, Pirkko Graves, or Bob Weekley. Their numbers are in the UUFR-VA directory and this service is available to members of the Fellowship. There are no fees. This support is offered with strict confidentiality. The following is a list of our counselors in our Fellowship and their qualifications:

  • Pirkko Graves is a Ph.D in clinical psychology from the University of Michigan. Pirkko had a private practice in individual psychotherapy and psychoanalysis in Baltimore.
  • Diana Jamison has a background in Psychology and in nursing. Diana has a Master’s Degree in Social Work and is an independent practitioner with a private practice in Kilmarnock.
  • Bob Weekley has served as the president of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Rappahannock for over five years. He is a retired military officer with degrees from West Point and American University. In addition to his military career, he has been an educator and a business professional.
