  1. This is directed to Carolyn, who posted an article by Jake Hearen a few years ago — on the Union Commission, a study project back in the 1968-69 school year. My husband was a seminarian then, and I took a job as an assistant to the Secretary of the Union Commission. I found this article today (April 16, 2021) when I Googled “The Union Commission” to learn exactly what that was — how could I describe it to a friend who lives in Berlin. I remember taking copious notes during meetings. I even have a picture of myself AT a meeting there. But I don’t remember much of what was said or the outcome of the project. I’m now 78. Just a pleasant memory being associated with Union Theological Seminary.
