Joyce Hickson, Orm Burnham—”Gardening: A Portal to the Soul”

Two UU Fellowship members talk about how gardening cleanses the soul and lifts the spirit. Join us for this unique exploration of the Seventh Principle of Unitarian Universalism. Sunday services at Grace Fellowship Hall start at 11 a.m. Most of us have been vaccinated. Masks are required for everyone indoors. (See below.)

Joyce Hickson and Orm Burnham

Joyce Hickson holds a doctorate degree in counseling. She established counseling programs in South Africa’s largest university, and she founded the Counseling and Clinical Services program at Columbus State University, where she retired as assistant vice president for academic affairs. She’s on our Fellowship’s Board of Trustees, and she’s active in several Fellowship committees.

Orm Burnham also is a member of our Board of Trustees, and he’s a frequent volunteer on a range of Fellowship projects and enterprises, including earth-centered spiritual activities. Orm was born in Columbus (he’s the son of long-time member Robert Burnham), and has lived here since the early 1990s. Orm is an avid mountain biker, and he enjoys camping. His profession is “carpet technician,” and was named the top carpet tech in Columbus. But his technical skills range far and wide, including gardening.

Visitors and guests are always welcome.
