UUFR-VA Sunday Service Schedule

Rev. Alane Cameron Ford

November 18 - Rev. Alane Cameron Ford:  Goodness Gracious

It seems that our country has spent the past few years in nearly constant conflict over definitions of wrong, bad and evil. Although understanding negative boundaries is necessary to living in a fair society, perhaps more conversations need to be had about what is intrinsically good. Alane's service will begin the reflection needed for that conversation.

Rev. Alane Cameron Ford 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 for James River Hospice and is the host of Death Club Radio on Richmond Independent Radio, WRIR 97.3 ( Thursdays at 12:30 PM. She is married to Phil Ford and they have 3 children.

Rev. Dr. Janine Howard

November 25 - Rev. Dr. Janine Howard:  Prospects for Peace

Reflecting on her recent trip to Israel/Palestinian territories, Janine plans to help encourage dialog about peacemaking and obstacles to the process.

The Rev. Dr. Janine Howard is the District Superintendent of the Danville District of the United Methodist Church (UMC). Janine's previous appointment was as pastor of Lower UMC in Middlesex County. She previously served at Warsaw, New Hope, and the Calvary-Greenbush Charge in Accomack County. Janine was ordained in 2000 and received a Doctor of Ministry degree from Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C., in 2007. Janine lives with her dog, Kobi, in Martinsville, Virginia. She recently completed a two-year cohort of The Missional Wisdom Foundation, an experience in forming and leading experimental forms of community. She is also a Virginia Certified Master Naturalist, serving as a Board member for the Southwest Piedmont Chapter.
