  • Social Transformation Project Showcase
    7:00 PM
    2021.04.13

    United’s soon-to-be-graduating Social Transformation students have done incredible projects, all furthering the work of justice. We’ll have brief presentations of each project, highlighting the learnings that came from them, with an opportunity for you to ask questions. Topics include: a creative magazine that uplifts children’s voices; effective social justice groups at a local parish; a Radical Death series that challenges both racism and our ideas about death; the planting of an LGBTQ affirming church in Southern California; and spiritual care for young people as a means of social change. Presenters include  Trista Eazel, Gabrielle Hesse, Joan Howe-Pullis, Emily Kindelspire, and Emily Stacken, with hosts Drs. Gary Green and Justin Sabia-Tanis. Please join us in celebrating these accomplishments!

    The insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6th, 2021, opened the eyes of many people in our nation–and including the world–to the religious views, politics and aims of Christian Nationalism and its intersections with bigotry, violence and white supremacy.  To unpack and understand what happened against the larger movements of history, religious traditions and injustice, the following guests have been invited to share in a panel of conversation as Hamline University’s 2021 Mahle Panel in Progressive Christian Thought:
    –The Very Rev. Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas, Dean of the Episcopal Divinity School at Union Theological Seminary, New York City, and Canon Theologian at the Washington National Cathedral; author of Stand Your Ground: Black Bodies and the Justice of God.
     
    –The Rev. Adam Lawrence Dyer, lead minister at First Parish in Cambridge Unitarian Universalist, Cambridge, Massachusetts; author of Love Beyond God: Meditations.
     
    — Robert P. Jones, CEO and founder of Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI), Washington D.C.; author of White Too Long: The Legacy of White Supremacy in American Christianity.
     
    — Katherine Stewart, investigative reporter covering religious liberty, politics, policy for the New York Times, NBC and The Washington Post; author of The Power Worshippers: Inside the Dangerous Rise of Religious Nationalism.

    You are invited to a celebration with United Seminary! Join us via Zoom as we celebrate the retirement of Carolyn J. Pressler rescheduled in light of the pandemic. Help us welcome new Interim President Molly T. Marshall, and join us in honoring new members of United’s Bossard-Ward Giving Society.

    The celebration will take place on Monday, April 26, from 7:00-8:15 PM.Join us early at 6:45 PM to participate in a virtual tour of the new campus! After the official program, alums are invited to participate in breakout sessions with fellow classmates — a great opportunity to check in with one another after a complex year.

    If you have words of thanks or appreciation that you would like to share with Carolyn, please email them to Ashley Hovell. On April 26 we will share your good wishes with her and hear from three colleagues that represent the breadth of Carolyn’s work at United:

    • Alika Galloway, Co-Pastor at Liberty Community Church PCUSA in Minneapolis and faculty colleague
    • Sara Wilhelm Garbers, former student of Carolyn’s, a minister and doctoral candidate in ethics
    • Craig Lemming (‘17), Associate Rector at St. John the Evangelist in St. Paul and United alum

    We will also extend our deep gratitude as we welcome members to our Bossard-Ward Giving Society — a group of alums whose commitment to faithful generosity to United exceeds $10,000 in lifetime giving.

    We hope you will join us for a moving evening as we celebrate the Works of Love offered by so many in our United community.
