UTS Opened Doors for Myself, and Others

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.

Life at Barrytown by Dan Fefferman (UTS’86)

UTS was a Mecca for me, a place where God allowed me to absorb the knowledge of the Christian centuries in preparation to return to the mission field strengthened and enriched.

UTS Through Students' Eyes

The following is a funny introduction to the work being done in the Divinity Colloquium under Dr. Isaacs guidance.

There is a special group of students meeting regularly but rarely seen together on campus: as in “Harry Potter™” you might be let to think ‘what is that obscure group doing so secretly’? Well, they are the Divinity thesis writers, a gang of six who - under the cheery leadership of Dr. Isaacs - are trying their best to become specialists in at least one academic area and make ‘a modest contribution to knowledge’ (Divinity Program Handbook 2007-2008, p. 8).

So if you see someone with glassy, red eyes and knots in his hair: that might be one of them. Instead of being watched with contempt, that poor individual might need your compassion and/or constructive interest and critique. Here are the (working) titles of the accepted proposals of our seniors:

Mikio Yoshida: “Why God Cannot Cut Satan Away at Once: Relevance of Unification Teaching to Theodicy”

George Ogurie: “Collective Human Conscience as Product of Interfaith Dialogue”

Yasushi Kojima: “Importance of Management in NGO”

Shinichi Takeuchi: “How Science was affected by Theology: The Influence on Heisenberg, Einstein, and Schrödinger’s work”

Ravil Kayumov: “The Comparative Commentary of Selected Bible Verses Used In Exposition of the Divine Principle”

Gerhard Bessell: “Preparatory Investigation for Establishing an Academic Institution of the Unification Movement in Latin America: Guiding Philosophy and Practical Necessities with Reference to Guatemala”
