Commencement 2007 Preachers and Celebrant:  On behalf of the Senior Class Officers, I am happy to announce the decisions of the Class of 2007 and its Officers for Commencement Worship Preacher, and for Commencement Communion Preacher and Celebrant.  The Commencement Worship Preacher for Sunday, May 27th, at 4pm, is Margaret Farley.  The Commencement Communion Preacher for Monday, May 28th, at 8am, is Nora Tubbs Tisdale.  The Communion Celebrant is Dale Peterson.  Many thanks to the Senior Class Officers for their good work on behalf of the Divinity School Commencement, and many thanks to the members of the Class of 2007 for their participation in this important process.  Gratefully yours, Dale Peterson

 

New M.A.R. Concentrate in Black Religion in the African Diaspora: This concentration is an interdisciplinary program based in the Divinity School curriculum and encourages students to take courses pertinent to African American religious studies in other departments of the University.  At least eighteen credit hours must be taken in courses focusing on Black religion with one course in at least four areas of the curriculum. In addition, six credit hours of foundational study are required in Bible and twelve in history and theology.  Although not required, up to six hours of credit may be given for a major paper or project.  Please contact Professor Emilie Townes (emilie.townes@yale.edu) if you have any questions about or would like to focus on this concentration.

 

Request for Student Feedback: The faculty who serve as the core staff in the feminist studies M.A.R. concentration have been meeting this semester to talk about the state of the concentration and to discuss ways to revamp and renew it.  We are now at the stage where we would like student input to help us with this task.  Below, you will find a draft of the new description of the concentration and the current listing of courses from all the YDS faculty that will qualify for meeting the requirements of the concentration.  Keep in mind that we are engaged with several faculty searches at the moment, faculty developing new courses, and the realities of faculty coming and going from the Divinity School.  You will also notice a name change that reflects the change in the field of women’s studies in religion that has been approved by the faculty in the March 2007 meeting.  We need to hear your feedback on the revised description as well as any suggestions for courses you would like to see us offer at the divinity school for this concentration.  Please send your responses to Professor Emilie Townes (emilie.townes@yale.edu) no later than April 20th to be included in our deliberations.
 

Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies in Religion
The interdisciplinary concentration in Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies in Religion (WGSSR) requires 27 credit hours of studies in its approved courses.  A list of approved courses at YDS will be published each year by the registrar's office, and students may also count toward these credit hours courses taken in Yale's various departments, so long as they are approved in advance by one's adviser. Additionally, students must complete 21 credit hours, which include at least one three-credit course in each of the five areas of the curriculum.  Students are encouraged to complete a major paper or senior project (worth three credits) in their final year.

Lectures and Events

*************************************************************

 

Lobby for Gun Control in CT: If you want to do something to respond to the VT tragedy, but you cannot travel down to Virginia you can do something here in CT!  Every day 10 children die of gun violence.  Those 10 children are usually die in inner city communities like those found in New Haven.  Why? For many reasons, one of which is the wholesale purchase of firearms by suburban firearm permit holders who then go into the inner city and sell these firearms to people who can no longer hold a firearms permit due to prior crimes. When the police trace the gun back to the suburban permit holder, the permit holder says the gun was stolen. Sometimes gun after gun is traced back to the same permit holder, but no action can be taken against the permit holder because they report it stolen.  CT Against Gun Violence is working to pass a law that would require gun owners to report their gun stolen or lost within 48 hours of its disappearance. You need to report when your car is stolen; you should need to report if your gun is stolen.  Last time CT Against Gun Violence tried to pass the law no one showed from New Haven, so our reps did not vote for it. Your presence on April 25th at the Lobby will make a difference guaranteed! This will not be a waste of time.  On the car ride home we can write notes of sympathy to the VT community saying that though we could not go down to Virginia we attend a rally against gun violence to help stop the cycle.  Please contact jane.eppley@yale.edu for more info.

 

Special New Testament/Ancient Christianity Lecture: You are invited to the lecture “Light on the Tomb of St. Paul:  Recent Archaeological and Archival Discoveries” with Dr. Giorgio Filippi, Curator of the Epigraphic Collection of the Vatican Museums Director of Excavations at St. Paul’s Outside the Walls.  This event will take place on Monday, April 23, 2007 at 5:30 PM in H. Richard Niebuhr Lecture Hall.  A team of Vatican archaeologists has unearthed the sarcophagus believed to contain the remains of St. Paul the apostle.  The burial site is located under St. Paul’s Outside the Walls, Rome's second largest basilica.  In this lecture, Dr. Filippi will describe the excavations, which took place from 2002 to 2006, and will discuss these and other findings that illuminate our understanding of the tomb as a sacred and liturgical space.  The event is free and open to the public.  Inquiries may be directed to David.Eastman@yale.edu.

 

Conducting Recital: Erin Westmaas, who has been conducting the Marquand Chapel Choir this year, is giving her degree recital this Sunday, April 22, at 3 pm, at Trinity Lutheran Church in New Haven. The choir will be perform the works listed below. It will be a wonderful recital, and I invite you to come and support her, and enjoy this beautiful music!

 

Liturgical Celebration of Classwork: Please join the REL 938:"Musical Skills & Vocal Development for the Parish Ministry" class in a Liturgical Celebration of Work.  We know you are all working hard on your papers and finals, but we thought this would be a wonderful break for you.  This event will take place on Monday, April 23 at 3:00pm in Marquand Chapel We look forward to worshiping in song, words and joy with you!  Peace, Allison Hager, Carla Dietz Carroll, Christine Overstreet, Frances Sink and Nick Lauer

 

Spring Fling Announcement: Spring Fling is just a week away!  We are looking for people to help out with set-up, clean-up and bartending during the event.  The time commitment is minimal and would be greatly appreciated.  Here are the times: Set-up: 4-5pm; bartending: 8-12 pm, in one hour shifts (no experience required); clean-up: 12:30 am.  Again, Spring Fling is on Friday, April 28 from 8-1 am.

The Katrina Reading Course will present what they have learned this semester on Tuesday, April 24th at 12:30 in S-100.  The course was designed to better understand the tragedy of hurricane Katrina combined with the difficulties and grace filled moments that the situation caused.  The course contained readings ranging from theodicy, pastoral care, environmental issues, and urban planning.  These readings were intended to better prepare us for a ten-day mission trip to New Orleans.  Ten Yale Divinity School students went on the trip during Spring Break.  In New Orleans, the mission group worked with Father Jerry Kramer and the congregation of the Church of the Annunciation, an Episcopal/Anglican parish, in the hard hit Broadmoor neighborhood.  While the group was there, they had the opportunity to meet with professors, students, urban planners, victims and relief workers, and some of the local color that you would hope to find in a city like New Orleans.  Please join Kat Banakis, Gary Loyd, and Marc Eames to explore the issues around the hurricane and its aftermath.  The group will be available for questions after the presentation.

 

The Yale Initiative for the Interdisciplinary Study of Antisemitism/Institution for Social and Policy Studies Seminar Series presents Gerald Steinberg, Professor of Political Studies and Director of the Program on Conflict Resolution Bar Ilan University to discuss "NGOs and the Durban Strategy: Antisemitism, Anti-Zionism, and the Distortion of Human Rights."  This event will take place on Thursday April 26 in Linsley-Chittenden Hall, Room 101 from 4:15-5:45.

The Annand Program for Spiritual Formation provides spiritual direction to YDS students at no cost. All second and third-year students are welcome to make use of this ministry. Spiritual direction usually involves meeting for about an hour once per month with another person who is skilled at helping you listen for the voice of God in your life.   This may include things like discernment regarding vocation, relationships or deepening your prayer life.  If you are interested in receiving spiritual direction, please sign up for a brief interview with the Rev. Jane Stickney, Coordinator of the Annand Program. The sign-up sheet is outside S-105. Jane will consider your background (e.g. religious tradition) and provide you with names to contact for an appointment. All appointments are at YDS.

 

The YDS Peacemakers and the Community Conversation Committee invite you to come to "Vicious Trauma, Spiritual Hope:" A Panel Discussion with Prof. Jan Holton, Prof. Richard Mollica (Harvard Medical School, Director of Harvard Program in Refugee Trauma), and Rev. Jerry Streets.  This event will take place on Tuesday, April 24th at 6:30 p.m. in Niebuhr Hall.  This event brings together three scholars and practitioners for a panel discussion on spirituality and mental health recovery in the aftermath of violence.  The panel discussion will be especially important for persons who work in the mental health field (chaplains, pastoral psychologists, nurses, social workers), as well as individuals preparing to enter ministry in the local church.

 

Dr. Mollica at the Bookstore: On Tuesday, April 24, Dr. Richard F. Mollica will welcome students, faculty and staff to a reading and book talk in celebration of the publication of Healing Invisible Wounds: Paths to Hope and Recovery in a Violent World.  This event will be held in the YDS Bookstore at 3:30 pm.  In addition to reading select passages from his book, Dr. Mollica will discuss human resilience and the potential for psychological self-healing, lessons learned from his 25 years of working with refugee populations and torture survivors.  He will describe the connections between humiliation, depression and violence, and reflect on the work that remains to be done by acknowledging and supporting the relationship between personal healing, social healing, social justice and spirituality.  Following the discussion, Dr. Mollica will be available for book signing and further conversation. Copies of his book are now available for sale in the YDS Bookstore.  All are welcome.

 

 

Classifieds

*************************************************************

 

Needed/Lost and Found:

 

Lost Shirt: I was hosting a prospective/admitted student on Friday, who was sad to find as she was leaving that the shirt she had just bought from the bookstore had been left in the Neighborhood Ethics class she attended.  Did anyone pick that up?  We're sending her something else anyway, so if you found that shirt, can you get it to me so I can stick it in?  (It's a long sleeve blue shirt with a bulldog with a halo on the front, in a bookstore bag.)  Thanks!  Johanna Johnson

 

Lost Stole from Marquand: Last Friday, one of the stoles, marked stole #877 to be exact, may have gone missing from the exhibition of the "Shower of Stoles" project on display in Marquand during the worship service.  If you inadvertently took this stole, or if you have any information about where it may have gone, please contact matthew.haugen@yale.edu or patrick.evans@yale.edu about the stole's whereabouts, or simply return it to the chapel, no questions asked.  The plain, unmarked stoles given out at the end of Friday's service were meant to be kept by service participants, but the Shower of Stoles project is a set of irreplaceable often unique and handcrafted stoles collected by the project as a memorial, and must be returned by us to the project's caretakers for further exhibits.  If you confused Stole #877 with one of the plain stoles, please return it to the chapel, and we can give you a plain stole in exchange, if you mistook the two.  Thank you for your assistance.  Matt Haugen

 

Car Needed: I will be a commuter student next year and will need a car but will no longer need one once I graduate.  So I was thinking leasing a car for a year might be a better option than buying a car.  Alternatively, does anyone have a sweet excursion out of the country coming up?    One that lasts, oh, say a year?  Need a carsitter?  Look no further!  Also, have you ever leased a car before or do you know how it works?  If so, I would love to talk to you.  Thanks!  Jeannine Oakes
