    Community: United Pagans

    11:45 AM
    October 1, 2021

    Sept. 17; Oct. 1, 15; Nov. 5, 19; Dec. 3, 17
    11:45 AM CT

    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.

    Black, Indigenous, Multiracial and People of Color (BIPOC)

    Sept. 24; Oct. 1; Nov. 5; Dec. 3
    7:00 PM CST

    A time for reflection, resilience, and reverence. Let us build a community that sustains us beyond the “gaze.” Bring your concerns, your prayers, and your dreams for ministry. Bring a ritual that honors our BIPOC ancestors. Bring humor, love, and joy to this place for us to be.

    CPE Information Session

    12:00 PM
    October 4, 2021

    Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE)
    Information and Skill Building

    Every Monday at 12 noon CT

    If you’re enrolled in a degree program that requires you to complete one unit of CPE, these informational sessions will answer all of your questions. Prior to coming to UTS, Rev. Karen Hutt was a CPE Educator at four major hospitals in Chicago and most recently at the University of Minnesota Medical Center. She is currently leading a local CPE Program in Public Chaplaincy. Given the nature of the pandemic, programs will vary throughout the country. This will require you to have a coherent plan for your application process and site selection. All sessions will be informational based on the questions you bring. Get familiar with acpe.edu. Individual meetings: calendly.com/khutt
