FAITH YOUTH INSTITUTE (FYI) SEEKS SUMMER STAFF AND TEEN PARTICIPANT
NOMINEES
--------------------------------
SUMMER STAFF: Do you have gifts for ministry you wish to share with
teens, ages 15-18?

Andover Newton's Faith Youth Institute is seeking applications from
seminarians for full-time and part-time Mentor positions for our dynamic
nine-day exploration of vocation, theology, spirituality, service, urban
immersion, and leadership training. The program is scheduled for July
8-16, 2006, on the Theme "Blessed Are You!" (from the Beatitudes in
Matthew 5:1-12).

Staff positions require participation in two planning sessions during
the Spring.
Application involves a recent resume, two references and a letter or
email describing your experiences and interests.

Please contact Alex Kern and Matt Carriker at fyi@ants.edu and
akern@ants.edu or 617-964-1100, ext. 267 or 313 to apply.

Many Andover Newton students have found FYI leadership to be a joyful
and transformative experience of ministry training and intergenerational
community, and a unique opportunity to carry your ANTS education off the
Hill into Boston service-learning contexts.

This work experience counts toward the BTI's Certificate in Youth and
Young Adult Ministries, and can be pursued in conjunction with Directed
Study in Christian Education at ANTS, with the department chair's
permission.

PLEASE ALSO NOMINATE TEENS FOR THE PROGRAM. We are seeking mature young
people (ages 15-18) curious and passionate about faith, with gifts and
energy, who may be exploring an emerging call or who are simply open to
learning and building community in the seminary setting and in the city.

Spaces are filling, so nominate as soon as possible. A nomination
involves emailing, calling, or writing a note to the FYI office with
contact information for teens, or their parent or guardian, or their
youth leader, or requesting information from fyi@ants.edu information to
send to the youth yourself.

Thank you for encouraging the faith and call of rising generations.

BTI Spring 2006 Bulletin Notice
------------------------------------------
This is in regard to the Spring 2006 (No. 5.2) issue of the Bulletin of
the Boston Theological Institute. (ISSN 1538-6597)

I would like to inform you that I have just discovered severe printing
errors in the text of numerous articles of the Bulletin. The errors were
introduced during the final printing process, but were not present on
the proof.

I apologize and regret this accident, particularly because these errors
were not identified in time and some of you might have already received
the printed version today.

As you know, this is internationally distributed and I am currently
working with the printer to see what could be done to rectify this.

A correct version of the Bulletin is available on-line at
http://www.bostontheological.org/publications/bulletin/spring6.pdf

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.

If you have any question, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,
Marian Simion
