July Worship Theme - Independence

Meeting Yourself

Rev. Doug McCusker, Guest Minister
Sunday, July 22 
 10:00 a.m. 

Our purpose is not a thing that is out there that we must find, like looking for a buried treasure. It is not a singular path that we must hew out of the soil with sweat and toil. Rather, it is a state of being at the intersection of our passion and the needs of the world.
 
Rev. Doug McCusker serves the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Fredericksburg, VA. Prior to being called as their settled minister in 2015, he was the Assistant Minister here at UUCR. Before hearing the call to ministry, Doug attended Accotink Unitarian Universalist Church in Burke, VA. He retired in 2013 from federal service as a Cartographic Systems Engineer. Doug lives with his spouse Marie and their three cats in Fredericksburg. They have an adult daughter, Bree, who lives in Pittsfield, MA.
 
Special music by Dick Gilbert, piano, and Winston Davis, violin.

Flight to Freedom

Rev. Rebekah A. Savage, Associate Minister
Sunday, July 29  10:00 a.m. 

In the New and Old Testaments of the Bible, freedom is both spiritual and physical—people find freedom in being united with God within, and independence in living in the places that God has ordained. How, as a people, do we rest in independence that is both spiritual and physical? How do we welcome the stranger in our midst and live towards the once cherished ideal as a nation of immigrants? What does our faith demand of us now?
 
Special music by Wayne Crump, guitar and vocals. Justin Furnia on piano.
