Moderator Tom Ashbrook was awarded the Livingston Prize for National
Reporting and was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University before taking a
plunge into Internet entrepreneurship, chronicled in his book, The Leap.
Mr. Ashbrook was enlisted to host emergency coverage of the 9/11 attacks
for National Public Radio through WBUR, Boston. The resulting program,
On Point, has become a popular regular feature on WBUR.

Panelists include Liz walker and Ann Baird McClenahan.

Liz Walker is the highly-acclaimed news anchor and host of "Sunday With
Liz Walker" on CBS4 in Boston. Liz, as you may know, received her Master
of Divinity from Harvard Divinity School. Liz is an activist on the
genocide in Darfur. In addition, she has recently agreed to become a
Trustee of Andover Newton.

Ann Baird McClenahan's resume covers three areas: media, business and
ethics. She received her doctorate in Theology from Harvard and is
currently an instructor and teaching fellow at Harvard. She has been a
business ethics columnist for the Washington Business Journal, and she
has also had a full career in marketing, having been a Senior Vice
President at HECHINGER COMPANY, Pizza Hut, and Earl, Palmer Brown. At
the latter, she oversaw - among others - the Washington Post account.

Peace Pole Dedication - March 21, 2007

Tuesday 3/21 5:00-5:20 pm (Rain date: Wednesday 3/22, same time)
At the Peace Pole (between Dabney and Worcester) dedicated by ANTS
alums.

Nick Carter will give a blessing at the Peace Pole Dedication on
Tuesday at 5:00 pm at the Peace Pole between Dabney and Worcester.
The classes of 2005 and 2006 gave us this Peace Pole. Many of them
(and maybe some of you) started their seminary education on 9/11, so
this gift is especially meaningful. Please come and invite others to
join us. (It will only last about 20 minutes.)

Newton Police to Speak on Wednesday, March 22
-------------------------------------
As many of you know, we have had several sightings of an unauthorized
person in Farwell Hall. We are taking steps to address this situation,
but it's a reminder that we need to take basic precautions in order to
keep the campus safe. Toward that end, on Wednesday, March 22 from 5-6
pm in the Small Dining Room, Detective Dave Schaefer from the Community
Policing area of the Newton Police Department will meet with interested
students in the Small Dining Room of the cafeteria to discuss general
safety issues. I invite you to take this step toward becoming more
aware of how we can keep our community safe.

"Mixed Blessings: The Challenges Facing Jewish-Christian Families" -
Weds., March 22
---------------------------------------
Wednesday, march 22
5:00 - 8:00 PM, Wednesday, March 22, 2006
Berenson Hall, Hebrew College

Journeys on the Hill invites you for free pizza and a movie!

"Mixed Blessings: The Challenges Facing Jewish-Christian Families"

Dinner, film screening and discussion with the film maker, Jennifer
Kaplan.

Sponsored by Journeys on the Hill (JOTH), as part of our ongoing
2005/2006 programming on rites and passages, Christian and Jewish
approaches to the life cycle.

We teach our children to wash their hands and brush their teeth. But
when it comes to religious traditions, our path may not be so
straightforward.

For some families, the journey is clear and certain. Others travel a
bumpier road with many surprising turns.

This program will explore the challenges of interfaith couples as they
raise their children. The film is a window into the lives of four
families, each responding in a different way.

After watching the film together, we will have the opportunity to
engage each other and the film maker in discussion, and to reflect as
theologians, as pastors-to-be, and simply as concerned Jewish and
Christian individuals.
