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.

Renowned journalist and author George Will speaks before an audience at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, on the role of religion in U.S. politics.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist speaks at the university’s Graham Chapel, giving the keynote address on religious beliefs of some of America’s founders and presidents.

In a speech titled “Religion and Politics in the First Modern Nation,” Will's remarks ranged from the preamble to the Declaration of Independence to the government as an evolving principle. He continues to argue that government should grant leaders the required powers they need to properly benefit the changing nation. Introductory remarks were made by former Senator (R-MO) and U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Danforth.
