    The Book of Jonah:

    Minor Prophet, Majorly Complicated

    Facilitated by David Elton – CE Lounge

     

    This class will read and discuss the four chapters of Jonah.  Jonah is unique among the prophetic books and presents a rich and complicated theological view of God, life and faith.  This class will include conversation about the book’s unique narrative, the prophet’s calling(s), adventure, success in mission, ministry outside the church, frustrations, and more. 

     

    Food at the Time of the Bible

    Facilitated by Georgia Strickfaden – Graves Hall

     

    What did people eat at the time of the Bible? How did they grow their food, store it, trade in it and prepare it? What are the symbolic meanings behind various foods? This is an in-depth, easy-to-read survey of every aspect of food in the Bible, accompanied by beautiful illustrations and photographs. The book examines each type of food, starting with the seven species that grow in the Holy Land, and continues with fish, meat and milk, fruit, vegetables and sweets. The impact of food on history is explained, how pacts were sealed by a meal and how the very act of eating was imbued with sanctity. At the end of the book is a section on recipes which could have been prepared in ancient times.

     

    The Two Towers

    Facilitated by Kara Windler – CE 311

     

    Pastor Kara will continue walking her class through J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved classic, The Lord of the Rings, with The Two Towers. It is of't said that there is a truth to be found in fiction that runs deeper than the facts of our daily lives. This class will explore the second book of the Lord of the Rings in depth wilst also taking a look around at Tolkien's wider legendarium. Whether this is your first time encountering Tolkien's work or your eleventy-first, all are welcome!
