Artists' Reception - March 2
---------------------------
March 2, 2006
4:30-6:30pm
In the Meetinghouse

The exhibit Worlds Apart/ Common Ground is a collaboration and search
for
underlying visual and spiritual unity by two artists whose work, on the

surface, is very different. The exhibit represents, on a visual level,
an
inquiry into the power of embracing different voices, and working to
discover underlying forms and harmonies.

Jeffrey Fine is an artist who is mainly self-taught, and has been
strongly influenced by the colors, forms, and rhythms of West Africa,
where
he first started to paint as a young adult. Marilyn Feinberg is more
classically schooled in fine arts in the United States, and uses the
human
figure as her main vehicle for artistic exploration. The two artists
are old
friends, and have been engaged in dialogue about art and the artistic
process for many years, but only recently developed the idea of showing

their art together, and inviting viewers to "embrace differentness"..

--------------------------------------------
Peace and a Time for Every Season - Tues and Friday
--------------------------------------------
Tuesday, Feb. 28 at Noon in the cafeteria
Friday, Mar. 3 at Noon

And now is the time to join us if you've been thinking about it but
have hesitated. We are putting together activities for a week of peace
activities. Many are low maintenance, low fat, low carb but high
fulfillment ventures to organize. Come to a meeting to learn more or
email Cynthia if you can't attend but are interested in what you can
do for your contribution to peace in the world (aside from the many
amazing ministries you are already doing!)

There are two Peace Fellowship working meetings next week: Tuesday
February 28th in the cafeteria at 12:00, and Friday March 3rd at 12:00.
(Let me know if you want to attend the Friday meeting and we'll see if
we should order pizza or not.)

If you are interested in being part of the Peace Fellowship but can't
come to the meeting, please contact me to let me know. Hope to see you
next week.

Seeking a Hurricane Relief Coordinator
--------------------------------------------
Last fall the ANTS Community adopted a plan to respond in the aftermath
of the devastating hurricanes on the Gulf Coast. Andover Newton has
'adopted' Sixth Union Baptist Church in New Orleans, led by the Rev. Joe
Howard.

Our goal is to assist the church in getting things ready to open back
up towards the end of 2006. We have been in contact with Pastor Howard
and are working on what their needs are.

We are now looking for a volunteer from the community to lead our
efforts in providing ongoing support to the relief efforts. This person
can be anyone from the Andover Newton community (Student, Staff,
Faculty, Alum, Spouse, etc.). It could even be done by a team of 2-3
people. The Relief Coordinator(s) will facilitate the school's effort
in helping to restore Sixth Union Baptist Church. They are in no way
expected to do all the work themselves, but the expectation is that they
will serve as the point person/liaison for the ANTS community.

The time commitment for this position will be from now until
mid-semester Spring 2007, with the bulk of the work being completed by
the end of the 2006 Calendar year.

Interested parties should contact me at (617) 964-1100 or
nnienhuis@ants.edu.
