On April 30, Unification Theological Seminary launched “Applied Unificationism” (AU) a blog intended to explore “the application of Unificationism to the wider world.” The blog encourages original contributions from Unificationists and interested others. Readers can access it at http://appliedunificationism.com/.

In AU’s inaugural post, “The Era of Applied Unificationism,” he wrote, “many” first generation Unificationists “hoped that their children would grow up to be super theologians,” but his experience was that “the second generation … have a normal distribution of interests” and “are well equipped to engage society across multiple fields of expertise and to embed unification values in many fields.” He anticipates that the Unification movement will shift from the theoretical to the practical “over the next 40 years as the second generation intellectuals come of age and begin to exert their diverse passions.”

UTS President Richard Panzer said that the Seminary is “happy to provide a home for the Applied Unificationism blog.” He noted, “There are many talented and thoughtful Unificationists around the country who have developed expertise in a wide variety of fields. We hope that this blog can become a resource for positive development within the Unification Movement and beyond."

Since its launch, AU has posted ten original contributions in the broad topic areas of culture and the arts, education, foreign policy, religion and spirituality, Unificationism, and women’s issues. The site has generated more than 2500 hits.

AU seeks quality commentary or op-ed pieces, written in a lively manner, on a wide range of subjects in which the writer exhibits a strong degree of familiarity with the content. Contributions range from 800-1500 words.
