Reverend Molitor completes studies at the Living School

Reverend Ute S. Molitor recently traveled to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she celebrated the completion of her studies at the Living School of the Center for Action and Contemplation.
Ute’s core teachers at the Living School have been Richard Rohr, Cynthia Bourgeault, and Jim Finley. The two-year curriculum included units of study about non-dual consciousness, human incarnation, cosmic incarnation, Third Way wisdom with a focus on Buddhism, Mystics and Prophets. All students on this path were also asked to engage in acts of contemplative solidarity. Ute has offered free cranio-sacral therapy sessions to professional care givers in an effort to support their self-care.
Reflecting on the milestone, Ute expressed her gratitude for the opportunity, stating, "I wish to thank the congregation for allowing me the time to pursue continuing education. You are all with me when I am away learning and engaging in exciting and integrative study opportunities such as these!”
Having now completed the program, Ute is looking forward to being an active alumna of the Living School, sharing the wisdom of this lineage with the congregation and the community at large.
Ute is also very pleased that two members of our congregation, Mimi Benedict and Susan Yoder, have begun the program this year.  You may wish to explore more about the Living School on the Center for Action and Contemplation website at  
About the Living School and the Center for Action and Contemplation The Center for Action and Contemplation was founded in 1987 by Richard Rohr. The Living School is a two-year program that includes in-depth teachings in ancient and contemporary Christian mystics and prophets, incorporates wisdom teachings of other religions, and fosters grounded acts of solidarity in response to suffering and beauty in the world. Envisioned as a faith alternative to the dominant consciousness, offering hope, inspiration and challenge to a despairing world, the CAC today attracts people from around the world—those who seek peaceful, positive alternatives and solutions to the difficult challenges of our often materialistic, irrational and violent world. These people share the CAC vision and understand the constructive message of the Gospel that crosses boundaries of religion, ethnicity, social class and gender.

Many individuals seeking direction from and understanding of God's will and love have found the CAC to be a place of discovery and much more. ###
