The mood of the first class of UTS at the Clinton Maryland satellite center was upbeat and veering toward the heights of optimism at its first convocation on Monday, Sept. 28th. The celebration began with prayer of blessing offered by Bishop David Billings, presiding Bishop, United Fellowship of Churches International and UTS Board of Trustees member.

The Association of Theological Schools (ATS) provides an overview of enrollment, students, faculty, and finances at member schools. Unification Theological Seminary (UTS) is not yet a member of ATS, but our presidents and administrative staff have been welcomed at several ATS conferences over the last 15 years.

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.
