Note from the editor

It has been wonderful serving you as the editor of the Q Source for the past two years. As I am graduating with my Master of Sacred Theology this week, it is time to turn the reigns over to a new editor Congratulations to Callista Brown who begins her tenure as the new editor of the Q Source in the fall. Blessings to you all my time hear at Yale has been wonderful, beyond words. I will be serving a Detroit church as a pastor beginning this fall. If you are in the area please look me up at Metropolitan United Methodist Church. God Bless You All Faith E. Green

Money and Resources in Women's Missionary Institutions in Colonial India," on Friday, May 7, 2004, at 12:30 p.m., Each event will be held at the Great Commission Hall, Overseas Ministries Study Center, 490 Prospect Street, New Haven. Bring a light lunch at 12:15 p.m. and coffee will be provided. For lecture details or directions, visit www.OMSC.org (What's New?) or call (203) 624-6672, Ext. 315.


Commencement Photos

2004 class composites will be ready for pick-up after the Commencement Worship Ceremony on Sunday afternoon.  There will be a table set up on the Quad (in case of rain, the Sarah Smith Gallery-- the hallway with all of those fabulous, framed photos) after the ceremony.  At that table will be not one, but TWO Jamies (Manson and OBrien) to give you your composites (and perhaps one or two other parting gifts).

Now, there is a catch (because your $40 check simply wasnt enough). In order to receive your composite, we are requesting that you fill out the Graduate Survey posted on our website.  Go to
www.yale.edu/divinity/Careers and click on Graduate Survey. (Ironically, there is a photo of Jamie OBrien on that web page hmmm.)  If you do not have time to fill out the survey, or if you do not have web access, a paper version of the survey will be available at the Jamie table.  But you really dont want to spend your time on Sunday afternoon filling out a survey now, do you???

If you will not be present for Sundays festivities, the Jamie table will be set up in the Common Room on Monday.  However, we HIGHLY recommend your picking them up on Sunday.  Trust me, it will be much easier for all of us. If you will not be attending any of the Commencement Weekend activities, please email me a home address where I can send the composite to you at: jamie.manson@yale.edu.

Second, there will be a group photo of the YDS Class of 2004 in full cap and gown regalia in front of the steps of Marquand on Sunday BEFORE the 4pm worship begins.  If you want to be in this photo (its really funreally), please be on the steps no later than 3:15pm.
You will be given the opportunity to order copies of this photo during the summer.

Commencement Choir

All are welcome to sing in the choir for the Commencement Worship service at 4pm this coming Sunday (May 23rd). Rehearsal will be at 2pm on Sunday in Marquand Chapel.  Please e-mail me at christopher.hossfeld@yale.edu so that I know how many to expect.  Thank you.
