Small numbers are Eastern Christian College's pride and its sorrow.The 11 students who graduated yesterday from the tiny Bible college in Harford County will be among the last to receive degrees there.Unlike other schools in the Baltimore area, such as the Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland, Eastern has struggled to maintain enrollment and to recruit enough church sponsors to make ends meet almost since its inception 35 years ago.Eastern, with a student body of 40, will merge with another Christian college in Illinois next year.

THE WALTERS ART GALLERY has made a substantial advance in the acquisition of 17 works of Ethiopian Christian art, most of which are now on public view. This complements its holdings in Armenian, Russian, Greek and early Italian Christian devotional art.This addition to the collection flows naturally from the Walters' xTC stunning introduction of Ethiopian religious art to Americans in its 1993 show, which fed its own interest and reputation, indirectly leading to this purchase and extended loan.

Tonight, as the midnight hour approaches, the parishioners of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Highlandtown will gather in a darkened church."Come, receive the light, the unwaning light," the Rev. Manuel J. Burdusi will chant in Greek as he lights the paschal candle from the eternal vigil light at the tabernacle. The flame will spread and multiply as each person in the church lights a small candle, a glow filling the room, illuminating the icons along the front of the sanctuary.Thus St. Nicholas, in the heart of Baltimore's Greek community, begins its celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus in a ritual handed down over nearly two millenniums.
