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
Karl Marx, Emile Durkheim, Max Weber, and Sigmund Freud we can gain some perspective on the origins of the social sciences and on historical assumptions that are still commonplace today."

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.

Wanted Dog Sitter
responsible, reliable, dog-loving person or couple to house & dog sit
during 2004-2005 school year. Experience not necessary -- caring deeply
about dogs is. We live less than a mile from the Divinity School, in
Hamden, in a large, comfortable house with two dogs: an 8 year old Brittany and
a 2 year old Cavalier King Charles spaniel. We hope to travel for about 3
weeks this coming fall, and for 6 weeks from mid-January to end Feb, 2005 --
followed by a couple of weeks home -- then another week or so in March.
We have a small fenced-in dog run behind the house, but in
addition to letting dogs in and out, we'd like someone to walk them several
times a day -- at least one longish one if the weather's good. We prefer
to hire students because they have more time to spend at home with the dogs,
who aren't used to being left alone for long stretches of time.
If you are interested, please call Barbara or Rob at
203-773-0799. (If no
response within a short time, you can try me at our country house in New

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 childrens 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.
