Faith & Film (3 credits)
Mondays, 6:00 - 9:00pm
Bill Pubols, DMin
The movies exert a massive influence in communicating values and shaping culture, but the messages can be missed when they are unrecognized and swallowed whole. This class is a chance to watch good movies and grow in understanding their meaning. Each week will consist of a brief introduction and a feature film, followed by a 30-minute discussion. The goal is to develop skills in understanding and enjoying movies as they relate to faith and culture.
Wisdom Literature: Job to Song of Solomon (3 credits)
Thursdays, 9:30 - 11:30am
Kent DelHousaye, DMin
An introduction to the wisdom and devotional literature of ancient Israel. We will look at the practical lessons of Proverbs, the problem of suffering in the book of Job, the meaning of life in Ecclesiastes, and the language of praise and faith in the book of Psalms.
CS Lewis II (2 credits)
Bobbie Post, MA
This class will be going through and discussing the following works of CS Lewis - Space Trilogy (3 books), Problem of Pain/A Grief Observed, Miracles, and one of the books from the Chronicles of Narnia.
World Religions (3 credits)
John Greenlee, DMin
Christians are supposed to put the Golden Rule into practice, but the question these days is how do we love our neighbors if we do not understand them? Learning about world religions will help you better understand what matters spiritually to your friends and neighbors who are not Christians. There is a way to remain loyal to the One who said He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, while at the same time being considerate of our neighbors who do not share our convictions. That is what the course of World Religions is all about!
