Greetings from the UCC Fellowship at ANTS!
Students who wish to be included in e-mail announcements about UCC
Fellowship meetings and events should send an email to Cindy at so she can create a group list. Kindly write
"UCC" in the subject heading.

Please include the following information:
Name, Program and, if you are planning to graduate next May

We are anticipating a busy year of establishing small, member-led
discussion groups, supporting service projects, hosting the Shrove
Tuesday Breakfast in February and the Graduating Senior Breakfast in
May. The General Synod in Hartford, CT, June 22-26, 2007 and the
ANTS' Bicentennial Anniversary will no doubt offer many exciting
opportunities for our participation!

We are looking for student volunteers to facilitate small discussion
groups for one hour, three times during the semester. We will provide
an agenda, list of discussion topics, web resources and an activity in
advance of each meeting. To volunteer or to request more information,
e-mail Cindy and write "facilitator" in the subject heading. New
students are strongly encouraged to volunteer!

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

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

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
