All are welcome to join the Catholic prayer group on Fridays at 4:00 p.m. in the Henri Nouwen Prayer Chapel on the ground floor of the library.

Julian Bishko Professor  of  History and Religious Studies at University of Virginia THURSDAY, APRIL 1, 2004 at 7:30 PM in Marquand Chapel. "Several of the seminal thinkers who created the social sciences in Europe had distinctive visions of the Protestant Reformation that affected their views of history and society.  By looking at the work of

Liturgy Symposium:
Siobhán Garrigan,
Assistant Professor of Liturgical Studies, Yale Institute of Sacred Music and Yale Divinity School
   April 5, ISM Great Hall, 4:30pm 
      The Memory of God
What does it mean to remember God, or God's saving acts? What does it mean to claim that God remembers us? Using fieldwork studies of various congregations' worship, Professor Garrigan will examine the theological claim that God has a memory. She will explore the relationship between this idea of God's character and the ways in which Christian worship, in its prayers, songs, symbols, and even space arrangements, is itself a process of remembrancing.

Church Profile and Job Description

In the center of East Barnard village there is a small church, that has served the surrounding area for over 150 years.  It is historically a non-denominational church community.  In the beginning, different groups, Methodist, Baptists, Universalists, would use the church on a specified week each month, sharing in the upkeep of the building.  Today, we come together to worship during the months of June, July, August and again at Christmas Eve.   We are looking for a minister, who may be active, retired or a seminary student, who would be responsible for worship services each week.  As our children are an important part of our community, we would expect each service to include a children’s sermon.  Other duties would include some sort of adult education or regular fellowship.  In the past this has been in the form of a book discussion or theme-based potluck suppers.  Two or three meetings over the course of the summer would be sufficient.  Visiting of church members who are sick, elderly or in need of support would be expected as well.  The community could foresee the candidate having time for study or research, or possibly having a part-time job in the area.         

Compensation for the three months is $2,500.  Help with obtaining housing would be available, and we would hope that the minister or intern would want to live in or close to our community.
