Bridging Religious and Cultural Divides
It is with a heavy heart that UTS announces the passing of UTS alumnus, Hitoshi Onishi (UTS'06), who died on September 1, 2017, from a heart attack. He is an MDiv graduate and was pursuing his Doctor of Ministry degree at UTS.
The Unification Theological Seminary community calls for racial and religious tolerance in the wake of another outbreak of hatred and violence in Charlottesville. We repudiate racism, white supremacy and all hate groups.
Our hope is that America will always seek love, unity and the higher ground. Let us pray for healing rather than condemnation, peaceful activity rather than violence, and love for all people rather than racial and religious conflict.
Dr. Kathy Winings, who has served as UTS Vice-President for Academic Affairs, has accepted a new position as Director of the UTS Instructional Site in Clinton Maryland. She will continue as Director of the UTS D.Min. Program and as faculty in Religious Education and Ministry.
