Creationism vs. Mainstream Science (and History), (Room 209-211).  Bill and Sue Trollinger, professors at University of Dayton, will teach this six-week course. Having taught previously at Westminster, participants will know how knowledgeable and approachable both are as they teach this class. The topic January 20 will be “The Rhetoric of Creationism vs. Mainstream Science.”  January 27 will be “Creationism as a Particular Kind of Science.”

BOUNDARIES: When to Say YES, When to Say NO, To Take Control of Your Life, (Chapel).
  Dawn Poindexter, a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Master of
Science: Clinical Mental Health Counseling degree, will teach this biblical-inspired course developed by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend. A few of the common questions to be addressed in class: What are legitimate boundaries? Can I set limits and still be
a loving person? What if someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries? How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money? Why do I feel guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries? Each week contains video segments by Dr. Cloud and Dr. Townsend along with class discussions.
The following class continues next week
11:20 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.


Mocking Evil While Still Taking It Seriously—Richard Baker (West Parlor).  “The devil . . . that proud spirit, cannot endure to be mocked.”  So said Thomas More.  And laughing the devil can be a good strategy: it can expose his pretentiousness for what it is.  At the same time, evil’s grip on our world, our lives, and yes, our hearts can be—and is—terrifying.  In this class, we’ll look at attempts to understand evil, insofar as it can be understood, as well as imaginative attempts to depict it in literature and art.  The class will be held on January 13 and 27, and February 3, 10, and 17.
