The YDS Methodist Society invites you to attend a workshop on the "censored" psalms. Next Friday, Feb. 2, Br. Tom Beveridge from the Order of Saint Luke will lead a workshop on some of the darker Psalms that can give us guidance to pray in the face of injustice or in times of extreme anger or depression. These Psalms, according to Beveridge, are often troubling for the church. As a result they are often downplayed, ignored, or "censored." Beveridge states that in praying the complete Psalm cycle, we often come to pray Psalms of praise when we are in turmoil and darker Psalms when we are joyous. Those times make us more conscious of the full range of emotions and the need to reach out to others who may be feeling differently than we are. Schedule: worship with YDS community in Marquand -brown bag lunch following worship (location TBA) -approximately begin 2-hour presentation/workshop -end by . Another e-mail will follow with the lunch and workshop location.
Last Chance for Graduating Student Photographs: The photographer is adding two more days next week for those who haven't yet signed up to sit for the Class Composite photograph. In addition to the two days next week already announced, the photographer will be in the Commuter Lounge: from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, January 31, and from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 1. So, please sign up on the bulletin board outside Niebuhr Hall to have your picture taken. Unfortunately, the photographer will not return to YDS after next week. Those who would like their photo taken after that will be required to pay a $150 sitting fee - three times the usual cost. Please remember: Your portrait is for the official senior group composite photograph that will be hung on a YDS corridor wall. Each student is provided one 11x14" print of the group photo at Commencement. The $50.00 fee, paid in cash or with a check made out to photographer "James Anderson", should be given directly to the photographer at the time of the photo sitting. Receipts are available. Students may purchase individual enlargements directly from the photographer. Order forms will be available at the time of the sitting. Selection of the individual head shot to be used in the group photograph is made at the time of sitting. Proofs of all photos taken at the sitting can be provided to the student at an additional cost of $15.00.
