*---------------------------------
Parking
*----------------------------------
There are now about 25 parking spaces available in the lower parking
lot below Fuller, facing the Terraces and the back of the Wilson Chapel.
Other than those that are marked off for remaining construction needs
and those behind Davis, these spaces are available for all faculty,
staff and student parking needs. Tomorrow some final lightpost footings
will be poured and 3-4 more spaces will be available. When construction
is completed we will actually have an increase in the number of parking
spaces over what we had before this project.

Our only concern is that those persons using this space be careful when
walking up to the quadrangle as the road is still unfinished and there
are construction vehicles using this road as well. In another 10 days
the new sidewalk in front of Fuller will be poured, making navigation
easier and safer.

Thank you for your patience.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer for Our Times - A Centennary Conference - Sept.

REGISTER by SEPT. 8

Sponsored by Hebrew College, Andover-Newton Theological School, and
Boston College

Dietrich Bonhoeffer for Our Times
Jewish and Christian Perspectives
September 17-18, 2006
at Hebrew College, Andover-Newton Theological School, and Boston
College

Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945) has become an icon of resistance and
moral courage. As a pastor and teacher, he was one of the earliest
Protestants to speak out against Nazism and summon his church to oppose
it. As a resistance figure executed for his role in the conspiracy
against the Nazi regime, his prison writings later inspired Christians
throughout the world.

What is Bonhoeffer's legacy for the Jewish-Christian relationship
today? His record of political opposition to Nazism is clear. Does his
contribution to Christian ethical reflection and activism have
implications for non-Christians? What is Bonhoeffer's place as a
theological and political figure in the legacy of the Holocaust? In
this conference, Catholic, Jewish, and Protestant scholars will reflect
on his witness and its legacy for our times.

Sunday, September 17
at Andover-Newton Theological School, Stoddard Hall
7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
Bonhoeffer, the Jewish People, and Post-Holocaust Theology
-Victoria Barnett, US Holocaust Memorial Museum
-Stephen Haynes, Rhodes College
-Moderator/Responder: Shai Held, Jewish Theological Seminary

Registration by September 8, 2006 is required.
