CPE Fair
On Wednesday, October 10, 2007, ANTS will host a CPE Fair in the Peck Room from 11:00am -1:00pm. Supervisors form all over New England will be present to share information about their programs and to meet with students. They will offer a short program to explain the benefits, requirements and educational process of Clinical Pastoral Education. Now is the time to begin making plans for 2008 summer and 2007-08 extended units. Don't miss this opportunity to learn more about this exciting and challenging aspect of your theological education. For those who cannot make the morning time, the CPE Fair will also be offered later in the afternoon at the Episcopal Divinity School: 99 Brattle Street, Cambridge.

Chuck Colson: Distinguished Speakers Series on Contemporary Issues and Faith

Grace Chapel, 59 Worthen Rd., Lexington

"Surviving the Clash of Civilizations"

Chuck Colson is founder of Prison Fellowship, a ministry in collaboration with churches of all confessions and denominations to promote prisoner rehabilitation and reform in the prison system. Operating in all 50 states, it is the world's largest faith-based outreach to prisoners, ex-prisoners, crime victims, and their families. Time Magazine called him one of today's "more thoughtful public voices". He is the author of 20 books, including the Gold Medallion Book Award winning book "How Now Shall We Live?".

Reserving Rooms at Andover Newton: Nuts and Bolts
To reserve a room at Andover Newton for your student group or office staff/faculty meeting, please fill out the appropriate form on the Andover Newton web site at: Please send in one form for each event. If you want to check the availability of rooms before you submit a form you are welcome to come and take a look at the facilities reservation notebook with Ruth Edens or Amelia O'Dowd in Worcester 101. Unfortunately, due to the amount of requests we get for rooms we aren't able to review the notebook over the phone with you, so please plan to come in person to review the book.

Rooms need to be reserved at least 2 weeks in advance. If you need set-up and reserve later than that we cannot guarantee that it will happen, in fact, Building and Grounds only guarantees set-up if they have a month's notice so please plan ahead. If you find yourself needing reservations the week of an event, call Amelia O'Dowd at extension 261.

Here's how to reserve a room. There are 3 different forms:

a. Request For Facilities: used to reserve a room on campus
b. Request For Building Setup: used to request that Building and Grounds set the room up for you in a specific way (Normally this is only done if you need furniture brought into the room that is different from the furniture already in the room. If you plan to use furniture already in the room, please plan to set the room up yourself.)
c. Request For Food Service: used to request catering for your event (If you request food be sure to also request that tables be set up to hold the food, via the "Building Set-up" form.)

How to Complete the Forms
1. Click on the name of the form you need.
2. Open the downloaded form in Microsoft Word.
3. Fill in the information just as you would on a paper form.
4. Using the toolbar in Word, click on "File" then "Save As."
5. In the "File Name" field, type in the name of the room and the date then hit "Save". Make sure you save the file to somewhere you will be able to find it.
6. Using your campus email account, prepare an email to, typing in any information you feel necessary.
7. Click on "Attach", find the request you just saved by room name and date and click once then hit "OK".
8. Hit "Send".

If you have any questions, please contact Amelia O'Dowd at ext. 261 or

Andover Newton has a Myspace page!
Admissions started a Myspace page for the school, and right now we are lonely. Add us as your friend! We would like to include pictures of campus events and gatherings on the page.

Pet/Housesitter Needed
We are looking for a pet/housesitter for November 19-November 25 for a
multi-pet household in Medford (three small dogs, several cats). This is a
great opportunity to get off campus or away from your apartment for a few

gourmet meals, be loved by goofy canines and friendly felines, and make some
extra money, as well! Please contact Karla Miller, or

information about the job and compensation.

Photographer needed for wedding on campus
First year MDiv student Charla Wright and Theresa Coley-Kouadio will be
getting married in the Wilson Chapel on October 13th at 4:00pm and they are
