Two Unification pastors, both working moms, are newly enrolled as students in the Doctorate in Ministry degree program at UTS, in which students meet in Barrytown for 2 weeks in August and 2 weeks in February, and do the rest of their coursework at home.

UTS opened two big doors for me—one from behind and one in front, and a lot of windows too. I joined the unification family in 1973 just six months away from getting my bachelor’s degree in mathematics at the University of Utah. After three and a half years of studying in Salt Lake City while on a swimming scholarship I decided to leave school and join the Unification Church. I have never regretted that offering.

On Sunday, Sept. 23, 2007 a group of volunteers celebrated the Autumn Equinox by donning gardening gloves and working on several "beautification" projects in the Peace Garden.

Over 100 bulbs were planted around the Chartres labyrinth, three dead trees were felled, many, many weeds were uprooted, and a new rock sculpture was created (see photo). Everyone shared a delicious BBQ picnic after their hard work. In the evening the labyrinth was candlelit and people participated in the meditative walk, connecting with the rhythms of the earth and the new autumn season.
