We will be talking about the spiritual practice of remembrance and how to consciously include this is into our days. Join us from 12pm to 1pm to learn more or just to have a space to rant about your midterms! Come and go as you wish.
More than ever, at this moment we find ourselves in a highly polarized nation where emotions are running high, so much so, that some people feel we have lost our capacity to listen or talk to each other; lost our capacity for civil discourse in democracy. This polarization is also happening between Christians.
During worship we will seek God’s wisdom for this critical moment; turn towards our faith to reflect on what we are called to, and how divine hope is ever present with us. Scripture passages are: Matthew 22: 34-46; Deuteronomy 34: 1 – 12
Hope to see you! And our worship will also be available early in the week
In college, you start forming opinions and parts of your identity that are defined by your unique experiences and not that of your community or family. This tends to happen because you are either physically distant from that community or because you are simply in a new headspace concerned with your individual future. However, these newly formed opinions and parts of your identity may not always fit well with others.
Hope to see you soon, Chaplain Intern Rachel, L3 Intern Samantha, & Chaplain Holly
Hi Everyone, How was your week? I hope that you are able to relax some this weekend and take a much-needed Sabbath.
What does it mean to place our identity in Jesus? What are we called to do through this identity?
We invite you to join us this Sunday for worship on Zoom! We will be exploring the topic of identity and how the Beatitudes can speak life into this theme. Here is the link: https://go.umd.edu/UCML3Sundays
You can ponder some of these questions in the meantime, and we’ll do our best to address them together on Sunday.
I hope that your week is off to a good start! It is an overwhelming time of year, so hopefully, you are able to experience some rest and peace in the midst of everything. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you need anything. Also, join us for some much-needed time of community this Wednesday.
As young adults, questions of identity fill our thoughts constantly. During these formative years, we are pushed to define ourselves in relation to the world around us in many different ways.
Join L3 (Listen, Learn, Lead) as we explore the topic of identity from 12 to 1p.m. this Wednesday! We will be discussing how personality quizzes, people around us and other labelling factors have an influence on our identity.
We will read the parable using the creative spiritual practice of Lectio Divina (we will teach you how to do this), and explore a social justice interpretation of the passage.
What is God saying to you, to us? How are we called to respond?
Whether you are just curious about the Bible or Christianity, or come from a Christian or other religious tradition, you are very welcome!
We honor and celebrate diverse voices and perspectives. UCM-L3 is an affirming, inclusive, easy-going, caring community, following Jesus Christ and his call to social justice. We are supported by the Presbyterian Church (USA), the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), and the United Church of Christ.
Hi Everyone, You’ve made it to the end of the week! How are you doing as we near the middle of the semester? Please be in touch if you need anything.
This week marked a very important anniversary. As of October 1st, Chaplain Holly has spent 30 years with the United Campus Ministry, so it is time to celebrate!
This Sunday (10/4) at 6pm we will be celebrating Chaplain Holly and her impact on the ministry. We will learn more about her story, share favorite UCM memories, and recognize how she has touched our lives.
