A Hopeful Call to Action – Rev. Doug McCusker
Negativity and despair can wear us down. Our climate is changing and for the last four years our national leadership denied science and made things worse. A new day is rising, and it is time to act. But first we must clean up our internal psychic pollution if we are to make a difference. We are called to engage with the suffering of the planet. Join us as we explore the hopeful opportunities and developments right in front of us because of the amazing work going on at the local, regional, and global level.
Rev. Doug McCusker comes to us today from Fredericksburg, Virginia along the Rappahannock River. Doug is in his sixth year as the settled minister of the UU Fellowship of Fredericksburg. He also leads a prison ministry with the Humanist Group at the Coffeewood Correctional Center in Mitchells, VA. Whenever he gets the chance, he leads groups in an outdoor meditation practice known as forest bathing. Mindful meditation, hiking, reading the Tao Te Ching and theological exploration are some of Doug’s main spiritual practices. Before going into ministry, he retired from a 32-year career as a cartographer and systems engineer with the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency. He and his spouse Marie live with their cat Zeebo, and have an adult child, Bree, who lives in Massachusetts.
