“How to Look at Art”

Paul Welch

This course will permanently change what you think about, what you see, and how you experience paintings.  Paul Welch, an accomplished artist and the former director of the Art department at Northwestern Michigan  College has both and artists’ and a professor’s experience, and combines both with a relaxed, engaging presentation style. The course meets  on Mondays for 8 weeks, starting Jan 4 through Feb. 22 from 10:30-11:45 and is free.

“The Wisdom Books of the Old Testament: Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Job”

Menorah

“First Corinthians as its first readers read it”

Thursday Bible Study 10:00

This class will change the way you look at First Corinthians, at Paul, and maybe at the New Testament.  Taught by Steven Kurtz who taught Bible for over a decade in Croatia, this course will set the whole discussion in the context of the first century Hellenized Roman world, enabling us to understand the issues and appreciate the solutions offered. We will meet on Thursdays at 10:00 for 20 weeks starting Jan.7.
