    Radical Death Series: Final Panel

    6:00 PM-7:00 PM
    March 21, 2021

    The phrase, “a good death” has become more and more prevalent in the public conversations around death and dying. But in many ways, that phrase creates a narrow focus that excludes issues of justice that are tightly woven into death as they are into life. The Radical Death Series, is a four-part series of conversations that will help widen our lens and broaden our scope when engaging in discussions around death and dying. Join us to discuss the inevitability of death, the denial of death, the “so-what’s”, and the “what’s next?” to close out the series with panelists Dr. Kami Fletcher, Angela Hennessy, and Ash Canty: Register Here.

    FROM IDEA... TO GRANT… TO FUNDING... RAISING MONEY

    7:00 PM
    March 24, 2021

    If you are in Social Transformation, Arts and Theology, chaplaincy or general ministry, at some point in the not too distant future you may be asked to write a grant to pursue innovative ideas or support existing programming. Learning about how to think about grant writing may be the furthest thing from your mind, but it is an essential skill for spiritual leaders. So many leaders say “I wished I learned a little about this in seminary!” Learn how to consider and procure grants from grant-making bodies. Learn how to develop relationships, conduct research, and present your ideas to make your grant successful.  This is a two part introductory session. Our presenter Liz Loeb is brilliant organizer and teacher and a friend of UTS.

    Liz Loeb is a civil rights attorney and community organizer with deep roots in political and social movements for justice and liberation. A graduate of Brown University, Liz holds a law degree from NYU School of Law and a Ph.D in critical social theory from the NYU Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Liz has over two decades of experience in fundraising, grant-writing, and in community-based resource models. Liz is the former Co-Director of the Kaleo Center for Faith, Justice, and Social Transformation and the current Associate Director of Minnesota Interfaith Power & Light.

    Stations of the Cross Liturgy

    11:45 AM
    March 25, 2021-March 26, 2021
    The Stations of the Cross is a Catholic devotion that commemorates fourteen images or stations from the last day of Jesus’ life. Participants meditate on each station and may recite specific prayers. As a processional liturgy—whether contained within a church or displayed in yards in a neighborhood—the Stations of the Cross is a kind of miniature pilgrimage in which the faithful engage in embodied meditation on the Passion of Jesus. Because of the pandemic, our liturgy will be virtual for the second year in a row. United students and alumni of many religious traditions have contributed original artwork to the virtual exhibit.
    These works will be discussed at the following Arts Lunch on Tuesday March 30th at 12pm-1pm CST (same zoom) and some of the artists will be in attendance to share their work.
