DECATUR, Ga.--George Roualt's prints from the "Miserere" series will be
hung in the Harrington Center of Columbia Theological Seminary Oct. 20-Nov.
15. The prints bring together the French artist's lifetime meditation on
how the poor and oppressed have become part of the passion of Christ.
LOUISVILLE, Ky.--A project to reclassify more than 87,000 items in the
Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary library has been completed by
more than 550 volunteers who came from across the country and who donated
more than 3,900 hours of time. A new computer system, which will enable
individuals to access library listings from their own personal computers,
is expected to be installed in January, according to library director
Milton J Coalter.
RICHMOND, Va.--Union Theological Seminary in Virginia has received a
$550,000 challenge grant from The Kresge Foundation. The grant will
support fund-raising efforts for the seminary's $11,000,000 library
construction project, now under way. Prior to requesting assistance from
the foundation, the seminary had raised $6.6 million toward construction
costs. To receive Kresge funds, the seminary must meet a challenge goal of
$3.9 million by the end of 1996.
