Writing Your Congressional Representatives!
At the end of the Special Community Gathering on Wednesday, Dr. Mullen invited everyone to write letters to their representatives in Congress concerning racial injustice, gun legislation and other matters for which we were praying. In the lobby outside the Harrington Center Chapel, you will still find some of the new seminary letterhead and lists of all the representatives in Congress. Feel free to write your own letter and put it in Dr. Mullen’s mailbox (Box 44F) by this weekend. She will have the letters mailed together, so that we can make a statement!

21st Century One Room Schoolhouse coming to Atlanta
Special Offer for children of Columbia Theological Seminary faculty, staff and graduate students: 21st Century STEM Academy will offer a $1000 scholarship per child for five years with a guarantee that tuition will not increase for your family during the five year period. 21st Century Stem Academy, Atlanta’s high-tech version of the one room schoolhouse, opens in August on Clairmont Road, near Emory University. University of Chicago professor Benjamin Bloom found that combining mastery based learning and prohibitively expensive individualized tutoring produced students who scored, on average, higher than 98% of all other students. School founder Gareth Genner, former President of an elite college prep school, has spent twenty years solving Bloom’s “Two Sigma Problem” and this school achieves that goal by leveraging accomplished teachers with a research-based blended learning curriculum and one-to-one technology to provide an affordable, personalized, STEM focused education for every student.
