    CPE Information Session

    12:00 PM

    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

    Contemplative Prayer Gathering

    8:00 AM
    October 6, 2021

    All are invited to a shared Contemplative Gathering every Wednesday morning to gather together in silence and sit in communal contemplation. This is an opportunity to find grounding in the moment, and to share in that grounding energy with similarly self-directed explorers. The last ten minutes of the session are devoted to sharing aloud prayers that have been submitted during the week. Please use this form to submit your prayer request.

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

    Student/Faculty Conversation

    1:00 PM-2:00 PM
    October 8, 2021

    Dean Kyle Roberts invites you to our next regularly scheduled “Student/Faculty Conversation” Friday, Oct. 8, from 1:00-2:00 PM CT. Our topic for conversation will be, “How can United better serve our various constituents around issues of public concern?” In order to increase the number of contributors to the discussion and to increase the diversity of perspectives included, the faculty would like to limit the number of questions/comments to two per participant. We hope that this will encourage greater attendance and create an expectation for everyone who would like to contribute to be able to do so. I hope to see many of you there!
