    Call for Submissions: The Queer Theofuturism Coloring Book

    In anticipation of LGBTQ History Month this October, the United arts community invites submissions for the second annual Queer Theofuturism Coloring Book. The history of the surviving and thriving of LGBTQ people in the US has been shaped by folks who imagined new ways of seeing, loving, being, and connecting with the holy. In the United tradition of play and creativity, we invite all students, staff, faculty, and alums to submit line drawings that reimagine myths, sacred stories, or any spiritual or religious images in ways that challenge and play with assumptions about gender, bodies, love, and spirituality. Everyone is encouraged to unleash whatever kind of queer spirit sparkles in your soul and reimagine old stories and see what might be possible for a future that is more just, more colorful, and includes all of us. We can’t wait to see what comes out! The images will be compiled and available for download on the United blog and will also be available as a free print book at Symposium Week. For best printing results please use a dark marker or pen on white paper. Last year’s edition is here. Send files in jpeg, tiff, or PDF format with the subject line QUEER to submissions@unitedseminary.edu by October 15. Send questions and inquiries to Professor Awes Freeman.

    Community: United Pagans

    Our group seeks to facilitate mutual support and conversation between students who are under the broad umbrella of nominally Pagan traditions or approaches. We have self-identified Heathens, Wiccans, Druids, and, of course, Pagans among our known numbers. We also foster a space for sharing ritual notes, ideas about chaplaincy, and interfaith engagement. And we welcome any United student who is Pagan-friendly/curious/adjacent. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month. Sometimes just to chat. And, on occasion, to gather in ritual.

    See this week’s Monday Morning for the Zoom meeting link and who to contact for more information.
