The Massachusetts Conference of the United Church of Christ announces a three-part series of events for middler or senior seminarians, to provide valuable information for navigating the UCC’s Search and Call process. No matter where a seminarian is currently in Discernment or where he or she will be circulating a Profile, these sessions will be of help.

  • Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013, 8:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.: “Preparing for the Search Process” focuses on writing a Ministerial Profile to get an interview and navigating the UCC Search and Call Network.
  • Friday, Jan. 31, 2014, 8:30 a.m. - 3 p.m.: “Engaging the Search” looks at negotiations and compensation, interviewing, pension, and discerning a match.
  • Saturday, March 15, 2014, 8:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.: “Getting a Good Start” will help attendees prepare for the first years and the first call.

All events will be held at the Congregational Church of Weston, 130 Newton St., in Weston, Mass., and are endorsed by the Clergy Leadership Development Council. The cost is $25 per event, which includes breakfast at each sessions, lunch at the January meeting, and materials.

Thursday 20

Movie Screening: “Thy Will Be Done”


7:00 pm

Location: Wilson Chapel

Film Screening: Thy Will Be Done (March 20)

Join BGLANTS and the Student Association on Thursday, March 20, at 7 p.m. in Wilson Chapel for a special screening of Thy Will Be Done, directed by Alice Bouvrie and featuring Jean Southard and Sara Herwig.

The documentary follows male-to-female transsexual Sara Herwig in her journey to ordination in the Presbyterian Church (USA). The Church’s conservative groups do not recognize Sara as female and challenge her fitness and eligibility to be a pastor. In addition, it is crucial to Sara’s success that she has support from friends and family.

The documentary explores the way in which alternative lifestyles and permanent choices of identity have the power to tear a family completely to pieces, only to bind it back together again, more closely but differently, than it has ever been before.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with Bouvrie, Herwig, and Southard.
