NBTS International Summer School

free universityNew Brunswick Theological Seminary
International Summer School
The Free University
Amsterdam, Netherlands
July 11-21, 2011  
God in a (Post) Secular Society
Registration and Deposit Due By April 15, 2011
The New Brunswick Theological Seminary International Summer School, working in collaboration with the Free University of Amsterdam theology faculty, provides a forum in which students can participate in discussions with a variety of Dutch theologians and church leaders offering old and new perspectives on current issues. 
Does God exist? Which God exists? The question of God is at issue in new ways in a society that is both radically secular - without God - and that is religious in new ways. The Netherlands, called the most secularized society in Western Europe, provides a fertile context in which these questions are being asked. Set in the international city of Amsterdam, the school provides a unique place and opportunity for theological students to engage in conversations with NBTS' own Rev. Dr. Allan Janssen, leading minds on the Dutch theological scene, as well as with Dutch students. All lectures will be in English.

The school will be held July 11-21, 2011. The cost is $2700 per person (double occupancy). The price could change with airfare changes. A $200 non-refundable deposit is needed by April 15, 2011. The cost includes airfare, ground transportation and lodging. Meals can be purchased in the cafeteria at the VU for inexpensive prices.

New Brunswick Theological Seminary M.A. and M.Div. students may receive three credits for participation in the school and completion of course requirements for an additional tuition fee.

Clergy Well-being Seminar at Drew

Join us for...
Drew Theological School - Classes Without Quizzes
"Keeping the Pastor Healthy"
Dr. Virginia Samuel
Associate Dean of Contextual Learning, Drew Theological School
Friday, February 25, 2011
9:30 am – 12 noon
University Center, Room 123
Clergy were once among the healthiest of all the professions and enjoyed low rates of heart disease, diabetes and depression. Since the 1980's clergy health across denominational lines has steadily declined. They now show among the highest rates of heart disease, obesity, diabetes and depression of all professions. Research shows that there exists a vocational problem and not a denominational problem relative to clergy health. This seminar will focus on current research on clergy health and the several issues -- including theological issues -- that contribute to the poor state of clergy health today. We will also explore things that clergy and congregations can do together to help clergy commit to better habits of self-care and look at examples of efforts in various denominations to address and improve poor clergy health.

The cost of the workshop is $15. Refreshments will be provided.
