What’s happening on campus?
We are starting off National Poetry Month with an interactive workshop inspired by Japanese haiku and Korean sijo. These short-form poems each represent a long tradition, influenced by Buddhism, and represent an often meditative response to a natural scene or sometimes laced with a philosophical question. We will be writing some haiku and sijo around the theme of spring.
Members of the United community are invited to join The Ministry Lab’s Midweek Retreat every Wednesday at 12:00 p.m. CST. Take a half an hour each week to be present with God, your Self, and others. Develop your personal practice and discover how deepened awareness and greater emotional and spiritual balance enable you to engage more fully, creatively and energetically in the essential work of God’s Beloved Community. To learn more or to get on the weekly reminder email, contact Rev. Emily Meyer:ministrylab@
The United Board of Trustees invites you to a virtual ceremony of acknowledgement for former President Lewis P. Zeidner, PhD. Lew retired on March 1 after a 12-year tenure at the seminary serving in multiple capacities, including as a member and chair of the Board. Under his leadership, United saw increased enrollment, investment in state of the art distance learning technology, the formation of new partnerships, and a move to a more centrally located, accessible campus.
