Unplug the Christmas Machine, taught by Elizabeth Herr (Chapel).  Whether we manage a large family or live alone, love Christmas or dread it, we all seek a Christmas season that includes less stress and strain and more meaning and wonder.  This class, based on the book Unplug the Christmas Machine: How to Have the Christmas You’ve Always Wanted, by Jean Coppock Staeheli and Jo Robinson, is an enlightening tool for boosting the best of Advent and Christmas and finding ways to mitigate the shadow side of the season. Books will be available to purchase for $12 but are not necessary to enjoy the class. 

Planning for Tomorrow, Today, led by Sue Hamilton and care team (Room 209, 211). This morning’s topic, Finding Peace with Where I will Live, welcomes guest speaker Amy Hamm from Bethany Village.  Many living choices with a continuum of care in mind are available to seniors today.  What options are available as I continue to live at home?  What is important to consider in choosing a retirement or assisted living facility?  When do I know it is time to make a move?  How much will it cost? What are the advantages?  Bring your questions and come to learn. 


Stories for Grown-Ups:  The Non-Narnia Fiction of C. S. Lewis, taught by Richard Baker.  Lots of people know of the Narnia stories—especially The Lion, the Witch, and
the Wardrobe
—children’s stories written by C.S. Lewis.  But not as many know that Lewis wrote fiction, including science fiction, for grown-ups, too.  More than that, Lewis read early versions of those works to his friends in their literary circle, The Inklings, a group that included other well-known writers, most notably, JRR Tolkien and Charles Williams.  In this class, we’ll discuss Lewis’s science fiction trilogy: Out of the Silent Planet, Perelandra, and That Hideous Strength.  But we’ll also consider the works of Tolkien and Williams.




Drop-ins are always welcome at all of our Adult Education classes.
No prior preparation expected.
