    Contemplative Prayer Gathering

    8:00 AM
    September 15, 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. Contact Karen Hutt for more information.

    Midweek Retreat with the Ministry Lab

    12:00 PM
    September 15, 2021

    Members of the United community are invited to join The Ministry Lab’s Midweek Retreat every Wednesday at 12 PM 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 Emily Meyer (’09): ministrylab@unitedseminary.edu.

    Conversation: No Agenda Wednesdays

    September 15, 2021

    Open Zoom Room 

    With 60 percent of our students spread out around the country, building community beyond the classroom can be challenging. Stop by to see who’s here, in an open Zoom room for conversation, humor, and colleagueship. Bring a cup of tea, an experience, a question, a poem to share, or find out what life is like for a seminary colleague in a part of the country you are curious about. Get to know some amazing seminary humans. Pop in whenever the room will be open.

    See this week’s Monday Morning for the Zoom meeting link. Contact Karen Hutt for more information.

    Vocational Network Building

    September 15, 2021

    Every Wednesday – 12 noon to 1:00 PM CST

    You imagine yourself in a ministry, but you can’t quite visualize it. You think you understand what the job market is like for chaplains, but you are uncertain what path will fit your particular needs. Come meet with your future colleagues from around the nation, make connections, and ask practical direct questions about your future career paths.

    Stuff Ministers Do in Rural Areas (Sept. 22, Oct. 20, Nov. 17)
    Stuff Ministers Do in Urban Areas (Sept. 29, Oct. 27, Nov. 24)

    Community: United Pagans

    11:45 AM
    September 17, 2021

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

    Who: Students, faculty, and staff
    What: Twice monthly space for anyone under the broad umbrella of nominally Pagan traditions, or who feels Pagan-friendly/curious/adjacent.
    When: 1st and 3rd Fridays, 11:45 AM (CST)

    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.
