Learn About Our Unitarian Universalist Faith

The recent alarm caused by the burning forests and beaches in Australia has reminded us that we all share the earth as our home, as the one place to which we all belong. Not only is it our home, it is our shared Mother from whence we all came. It is a scientific truth that sits at the center of the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

Rev. Doug McCusker comes to us from 90 miles upstream and this is his fourth time as our guest speaker. Doug is in his fifth year as the settled minister of the UU Fellowship of Fredericksburg. He also leads a prison ministry with the Humanist Group at the Coffeewood Correctional Center in Mitchells, VA. Whenever he gets the chance, he leads groups in an outdoor meditation practice known as forest bathing. Mindful meditation, hiking, reading the Tao Te Ching and theological exploration are some of Doug's main spiritual practices. Before going into ministry, he retired from a 32 year career with the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency. He and his spouse Marie live in Fredericksburg, and they have an adult child, Bree, who lives in Massachusetts.
