Term 6 Classes continue this week.
Protestant Fundamentalism in the USA, William Trollinger (Chapel) — In this class we will look at the past and present of American fundamentalism, taking special note of its origins in the early twentieth century, the fundamentalist controversies of the 1920s (including among the Presbyterians), theology (including biblical inerrancy, premillennialism, and creationism), politics (including the rise and success of the Christian Right), and the creation of a subculture.
Myers Briggs: A Window into our Differing Gifts and Preferred Spiritual Paths, Jane Shirley and Laurie Davis (Room 209-211) — "Whatever the circumstances of your life, whatever your personal ties, work, and responsibilities, the understanding of type can make your perceptions clearer, your judgments sounder, and your life closer to your heart's desire,” wrote Isabel Briggs Myers. This class will offer an introduction to Type, Type Dynamics, and a look at Temperament through the lens of Christian spirituality, including preferred prayer styles. Each participant will be offered a window into his or her own type and temperament. Those who desire to take the MBTI assessment may do so following class April 23 or 30.
First Corinthians, Dave Watson (Room 203-205) — First Corinthians gives a unique look into the development of the nascent Christian movement within the multi-religious world of the Roman Empire. Paul is looking at a broad variety of issues in this letter, from the fracturing of the church to the Lord's Supper to speaking in tongues. Over several weeks we will look at historical context and theological themes that emerge in this correspondence.
Every Thursday, 5:30-6:40 p.m.
