Drawing the Line
Sundays, January 7-February 18
We all want to raise responsible, respectful, and successful children, but sometimes it’s difficult to know how to do that, or it seems that none of our methods are working. How can we avoid raising children who feel they can never quite measure up? How does rescuing our children from the consequences of their choices and behaviors undermine discipline? What roles, if any, do negotiation and compromise play in discipline? Should we require our kids to do chores, and how do we do that? How do we prepare them (and ourselves!) for their adolescence? This six-session course will explore these practical, crucial questions.
Led by Christina Carlisle, Meg Gammage, and Miles Thomas
Location: 2nd floor Conference Room
Jewish Society Before Jesus
Sundays, February 4-March 4
This class will examine the social and cultural aspects of the Jewish people for the two millennia before the birth of Christ. We will consider such questions as: Where did the Jewish people originate? How were the Jewish people organized into tribes? What are tribes and clans? What was their daily life like?
Led by Rick Marksburg
Location: Land Building, Riverside Room
Russian Novelists and Christianity.
Sundays, April 8 – 29
This class will focus on the works of Tolstoy and Dostoevsky. Tolstoy had great influence on Gandhi and Martin Luther King through non-violent protest movements which trace back to the Sermon on the Month. Dostoevsky’s Brothers Karamazov story will be compared to the Grand Inquisitor and Christ.
