Haystack 200th Anniversary - Sept. 22-24
------------------------------------
On an August afternoon in 1806, five Williams College students met in a
field, as was their habit, to talk and pray and, like so many young
people, to dream of a better world. When a sudden thunderstorm
interrupted, they sought shelter under a haystack - and there resolved
to offer their lives, in the name of Jesus Christ, to carry their faith
into service "into all the world."

From such humble beginnings the American foreign missions movement was
born.

This fall, Williams College and Williamstown's First Congregational
Church celebrate this important anniversary with a weekend-long
celebration September 22 - 24, 2006 on the Williams College campus in
northwestern, Massachusetts.

or more information on this great moment in church history, contact Ken
Swenson at swenson@tabcom.org. (781) 320-8100, ext. 110 or visit

FINDING GOD in SEMINARY - a workshop for seminarians
September 23, 2006 (Saturday, 10 am - 3 pm)
One of the ironies of theological education - engaging in study of and
about God - is that God often seems to disappear in the process. This
workshop will offer practical guidance for those who desire to deepen
their relationship with God in prayer in the context of their seminary
education.
Led by BRS. CURTIS ALMQUIST & DAVID VRYHOF

DISCERNMENT in PRAYER - a workshop especially for young adults (though
all are welcome)
October 21, 2006 (Saturday, 10 am - 3 pm)
One of our most popular programs, this workshop offers practical
guidance for praying about significant life choices drawn from the
wisdom of St. Ignatius of Loyola.
Led by BRS. DAVID VRYHOF & ROY COCKRUM
