Unification Theological Seminary, Barrytown campus is the former estate of Robert Livingston on the Hudson River. The Livingstons were a prominent family in the Hudson Valley in Colonial times. One, Philip Livingston was a signer of the Declaration of Independence. In the summer of 1868, 9-year-old Theodore Roosevelt came to Barrytown with his family and stayed for the month of August, while the Aspinwall’s were away.

The Doctor of Ministry degree was first approved by The American Association of Theological Schools (now ATS) in 1972, with significant growth occurring in the number and scope of these programs soon after its inception.

The event, titled “Crossing Boundaries, Connecting Hearts”, was held at the Toronto Family Federation center on July 19th and was well attended by the general public and by about 12 poets who also read from their work.

Lloyd read from his new book “Remembering Father”  after introducing Rev. Moon as the number one bridge builder of our time.  To make his point Lloyd spoke of Father Moon’s efforts establishing a unique seminary wherein students could be exposed to a faculty of diverse religious backgrounds thus breaking down walls and fostering greater understanding between faiths. In particular, Lloyd highlighted Rev. Moon’s matching and Blessing work as the quintessential bridge building and barrier breaking phenomenon.

Lloyd also gave the Sunday service at the Toronto church, again sharing poems and anecdotes about Father Moon.
