9:15 Discussion Group Topic:"What is a good friend?”
10:30 Service:Rev. Kathy Tew Rickey, “On the Edge of the Unknown: Where Possibility Lives”  Working as a chaplain in a Level II Trauma Center, you can imagine the multitude of patient/family crises I witnessed where I could not know what was going to happen in the next second, minute, hour.  Standing in that place without assumption or prediction and staying in the moment, open to all possibilities, was where the chaplain had to be; it was challenging.  But if we learn how to be open to possibility in certain moments, even in our daily relationships, we can become better friends, partners, parents, co-workers, and co-members.Audio of Sermon

 APHANTASIA      Cliff Jackson    January 23, 2019, 4:00—5:30


 Last May I read a curious article in the News Journal.  "Man with no tail discovered in Ormond Beach". What in the world? I don't have a tail either! I had no idea that people have tails. I'm 67 years old and now I find out about this. Unbelievable!   Actually, that is unbelievable, but it is exactly how I felt when I found out that I have Aphantasia. I am "mind's eye blind". My first thought was amazing. I'll share the history, testing, current research and personal experience of the condition. We will also explore related conditions like synesthesia and eidetic memory.

WORLD RELIGIONS CLASSES— led by Rev. Kathy Tew Rickey 1 st and 3rd Wednesdays 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. in Room 1 — January 16 & 30, February 6 & 20, and March 6 & 20. In six 1½ hour sessions, we will study the basic tenets of religions of the East: Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, Taoism, Shinto, Confucianism. No pre-reading, no homework – just come and enjoy in words, pictures, and hear from some folks who are practitioners of these faiths. There will also be break-out sessions for class participants to explore and process with each other the many remarkable aspects of eastern religions. Rev. Kathy is an ordained Unitarian Universalist minister with a Master of Divinity degree from Meadville Lombard Theological School, Chicago, Illinois. She has been serving UU congregations since 2011 and has lived in Ormond Beach since being called to UUCOB in 2016. She shares her home in Ormond Beach with her little dog, Daisy. Rev. Kathy also serves as cochair of the F.A.I.T.H. organization. In addition, she is active in Toastmasters and enjoys gardening, kayaking, golfing, travel, and dining with friends
