4/13 L3: Power of Purpose – Spring Holidays, 12 pm, Pyon Su Room 2108, Stamp Student Union

Hi Everyone, 

We hope that you are doing well. We are looking forward to gathering together Wednesday. We will be meeting in Pyon Su Room 2108 at noon to discuss recent and upcoming spring holidays. 

This month Islam, Judaism, and Christianity are all recognizing important holidays that pertain to their tradition, such as Ramadan, Passover, and Easter respectively. What do these holidays mean to you? What memories do you have associated with them? How do they inform your sense of purpose? Then, of course, we are coming up on Earth Day and different Pagan holidays with the coming of Spring. How do you experience the changing of seasons? We will be discussing all this and more!

Let us know if you are coming, and we will make sure to have a sandwich ready. 

Blessings, 

Chaplain Holly (she/her) ulmer@umd.edu

Rachel, chaplain intern (she/her) koehler@umd.edu

4/6 L3:Power of Purpose-Healthy Relationships, 12 pm, 2108 Pyon Su Room, Stamp Union

Hi Everyone, 

How are you doing? We hope that you are doing well. Please reach out if you need anything. 

Wednesday we will be meeting in our usual location of the Pyon Su Room 2108 at noon for a conversation on healthy relationships. How do you define a healthy relationship? How would you describe some healthy relationships that you have experienced? These are some guiding questions, but of course, offer as much as you feel comfortable.

Hope to see you soon. Lunch included.

Peace and blessings, Chaplain Intern Rachel and Chaplain Holly

3/30 L3: Faith and/or Secular Journey Towards Meaning and Purpose, 12 pm, 2108 Pyon Su, Stamp Union

Hi Everyone, 

We hope that you are doing well. How was your Spring Break? We look forward to getting caught up with you.

Our topic is about our personal faith and secular journeys toward meaning and purpose. We will be exploring our individual denominations or traditions and how they inform our lives. You can be thinking about the question – What is something distinctive about my tradition that means a lot to me and I want others to know? 

Hope to see you soon, 

Chaplain Holly (she/her) ulmer@umd.edu

Rachel, Chaplain intern (she/her) koehler@umd.edu

3/9 L3: Power of Purpose, 12 pm, Stamp Union, Emotional Well-Being

Hi Everyone, 

We are looking forward to seeing you and exploring our emotional well-being together. Rachel will share some about what she has learned from her experience in Clinical Pastoral Education, but you can begin to consider emotions that come easily and hard to you. Then ask yourself why that may be. It is a particularly emotional time with all that is happening in the world, so check in with yourself and reach out for help. 

Our meeting is in Room 2108, Pyon Su, Stamp Student Union. See you soon!

Best, 

Chaplain Holly (she/her) ulmer@umd.edu

Rachel, Chaplain intern (she/her) koehler@umd.edu
