December 16 - The Fellowship Singers:  Music Brings Us Together

For the eighth year, Hank Stupi, our music coordinator, will again be joined by the Fellowship Singers, all eager to perform some of their favorite songs guaranteed to warm your heart or perhaps even tickle your funny bone. Please join us and allow the music to bring us together that day.

The Annual Holiday Party at the home of the Kinneys’ will follow the service.


UU Kids: Each and Every Person is Important
The message of our story this Sunday: “Each night a child is born is a holy night.” Our story will be interspersed with holiday carols, and we’ll be talking about topics such as “what makes a good mom or a good dad?” and “what do children need to grow up healthy and happy?” A reminder that on the third Sunday of the month, you bring your child(ren) back to the children’s space between 10:15 A.M. and 10:30 A.M. for a full hour of children’s programming.

Sara Mackey

December 23 - Sara Mackey:  The Value of Mercy

Long ago, at the beginning of a newly emerging movement that would come to be known as Christianity, oppressed people heard the story of a way of life that would be different, a way that would depend on the value of mercy. Join us and Sara Mackey as we look at Christmas with a twenty-first century perspective and see where mercy becomes visible.

Sara Mackey has been a friend of UUFR since her seminary days, when the fellowship was meeting in the Women’s Club down the road. She 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. Always on the lookout for new perspectives, Sara currently attends evening worship at St. Stephens Episcopal Church in Richmond. Sara has a son, daughter-in-law, and pre-school grandson who live in Brooklyn, and a daughter and son-in-law in Richmond. She has two cats who share her home.

 
Dr. Susan Moseley, Pastor

December 30 - Dr. Susan Moseley, Pastor:  Rituals and Rhythms – Weaving Together the Human and the Holy

Stories, relationships, symbols, and rituals are the raw materials for shaping and sustaining a meaningful life. This talk will provide a bit of inspiration to begin the New Year both communally and individually.

Susan Moseley, D.Ed.Min., is pastor for the UUFR-VA. She received her Doctor of Educational Ministries degree 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, pastor for Campbell Memorial Presbyterian Church in Weems, VA.

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.
