UUFR-VA Sunday Service Schedule


June 25 - Warren Haynie:  Death with Dignity (and Other Things You Should Do Before You’re Done.)

Warren will lead an informal discussion on Physician Assisted Suicide in Virginia and in those states that have passed legislation approving it. The discussion will cover a brief history of the Movement, with special attention to the Oregon statute which was the first in the USA to be codified. The service will provide some thoughts from a legal and personal perspective on the dying process, how it affects each of us, and what we can do about it (not wills & trusts, but the control that we have over our own death).

Warren was born, raised, and lives in Northumberland County where he has practiced law since 1971. You could say that he is an old country lawyer. He was exposed to higher education at VMI, Duke, Old Dominion and UVA (some of it took, some of it didn’t). He is interested in the Death with Dignity Movement and the separation of church and state. Aside from legal organizations, he is a member of the American Humanist Association, Compassion & Choices and Final Exit.

Susan Moseley

July 2 - Susan Moseley:  We Don’t Know It All -- My Engagement with a Particular Mayan Community in Guatemala

In her talk, Susan will share stories from the week-long experience, highlighting her personal experiences of struggle and hope. She will also offer a few theological and sociological insights gained when white, wealthy, English speaking youth meet brown, very poor, Mam speaking youth and build a partnership together.

Susan Moseley is the church educator for Westminster Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, Delaware. She received her Doctor of Educational Ministries degree (D.Ed.Min.) from Columbia Theological Seminary in 2012 and her certificate in spiritual direction from the Haden Institute in 2017. Susan is married to the Reverend Jim Moseley, Executive Presbyter for the Presbytery of New Castle.

Eddie Correia

July 9 - Eddie Correia:  The Higher Self and Wellness

How do we find the strength and determination to keep ourselves mentally and physically well as we age? Having a higher self, and taking the time to reflect on it, can help.

Eddie Correia 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".

Lynne Larson

July 16 - Lynne Larson:  Your Dream Wisdom

Lynne Larson will offer a program on listening to dreams and how to tap into your inner wisdom through guided imagery. What do St. Francis of Assisi, Harriet Tubman, Salvador Dali, Paul McCartney and Jack Nicklaus have in common? Their dreams changed their lives! Join us to learn about listening to your own dreams and opening up to your inner wisdom.

Lynne Larson, M.A. has been formally trained in spiritual direction, MBTI and Integrated Imagery (regression/progression method). With over 40 years of dream study and listening to thousands of dreams, Lynne Larson teaches and conducts dream workshops and works with individuals privately. Her practice in centering prayer and interest in the mystics led her to offer programs on Julian of Norwich, Celtic Spirituality and mindfulness stress reduction. In 2004 she established Retreats to offer seekers a time to set aside the demands of everyday life, and come together for rest and spiritual renewal. She sees in ancient spiritual traditions a modern approach to heal the human condition through the constant reminder that God thirsts for us, loves us without blame, and is present in all. Lynne makes her home in Virginia Beach and is a member of Church of the Holy Apostles, an ecumenical Roman Catholic and Episcopal congregation established in 1977 by Catholic and Episcopal bishops, and has been a long time member of the Association for Research and Enlightenment (Edgar Cayce foundation).
