    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.

    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.

    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.
