Dear Elisabeth, I hope this find you well. I know you said you were going to be in Europe this summer. We think of you often. During the past week or so I ordered your book, “Beloveds Forever Together” from Amazon and just finished reading it. What a beautiful expression of your relationship with Dietrich! In […]
I remember my brief but meaningful exchanges with Dr. Seidel being peaceful and interesting. I am interested to learn more of your activities and want to support you as time allows. God Bless your efforts.
Dietrich taught us the Marriage Enrichment Course in 2006 on the phone in the days before we knew about webinars.

I remember I saw a very tall, handsome gentleman originally from Austria, and it was Dr. Seidel as a […]
Like many in the Unification Community, I was first introduced to Dr. Dietrich Seidel at our beloved Unification Theological Seminary (UTS) in Barrytown, NY.
