Hello Dancing Friends,

We hope to see many of you this Monday night, March 27th.

Judy and I wanted to let you know that the dance AFTER this one is
being
rescheduled from April 24th to May 1st. It is May Day and we would love
to
have a potluck that evening. If the weather cooperates, we can enjoy
the
outside space.

A reminder will follow at the end of April, but we wanted to let you
know
now since this is a change from our regular 4th week schedule of
dancing.

Blessings,
Eileen and Judy

29
--------------------------------------------------
6:30 - 8:00 p.m.
In the Peck Room

The Theology, Ministry, and Public Life Program at Andover Newton
Theological School Presents

"Racism and Race Relations" on March 29th by Andover Newton's Committee
On Racism and Dr. Kirk Jones.

The brief presentation is open to all and at no cost. Beverages and
snacks will be made available, free of charge. All are invited to
attend.

------------------------------
ANTS Community Day - March 29
------------------------------
This is a reminder that on March 29 ANTS will hold a Community Day for
students who are not in classes. Regular classes will be held. Four
members of the faculty, Professors Greg Mobley, Sharon Thornton, Beth
Nordbeck, and Dean Pazmino will be leading teams of students into
different sites off the hill for a day of service and reflection. Sites
include going to the Boston City Mission, working with Common Cathedral
staff doing art with homeless people, and aiding in the revitalization
of an inner city park in Jamaica Plain.

Participants will gather at ANTS at approximately 11:00 a.m. for a
commissioning service, and then head to different sites. Everyone will
bring their own lunch, and have it while we are debriefed at the sites.
The debriefing will be followed by hands on service activities during
the afternoon. We will return to campus by 5 pm for dinner in the
cafeteria. At that time Rev. June Cooper from City Mission will join us
and help us unpack the day. Following the dinner conversation we
encourage people to attend the presentation on racism Kirk Jones is
offering at 6:30 that evening in the Peck Room.

In lieu of chapel on the 29th, students who are in classes and thus
cannot attend the Community Day are encouraged to go to chapel from 1-2
to pray for the teams that are off the hill. Everyone is invited to
regroup over dinner at 5 in the cafeteria. This year's Community Day
will serve as a pilot project for Community Days that are being planned
for both semesters next year. So participants will be asked for
feedback that will help us plan all-campus Community Days next year.

If you would like to participate this year, please contact me so I can
put your name on the list. We will need to insure that we have adequate
numbers for the teams to do the service projects, so we will need a
rough head count.

I hope many of you will participate in this important service and
learning opportunity.
