104 THE OLD TESTAMENT PART 2, The Wisdom Literature & Prophets - Seeing Jesus Through the Lens of the Old Testament: Most of us spend the majority of our bible reading time in the New Testament and for good reason. If you want to know about Christianity, reading the words of Jesus is certainly a solid place to start. When it comes to the Old Testament, many Christians shy away from it, or look only at a few well-known sections. To us in the 21st century, much of the Old Testament seems obscure, and difficult and frankly boring. We struggle with the complex history, the diverse cultures, and the theological content contained with the Old Testament. The result is often a neglect of the Old Testament. Let’s fix that! Join Rev. Todd Schmidtetter of Holy Apostles Episcopal Church
as he guides you through the Old Testament looking at the major themes and events that shape the Christian understanding of God, ourselves, and the world around us.

201 SCIENCE IN YOUR LIFE: Tom Sanders explores the physics of everyday events and is both informative and fun.

This semester we will concentrate on semiconductors and electronics and their applications.

This class will incorporate Yoga and Pilates exercises as well breathing and relaxation practices to help prevent and alleviate back pain and postural misalignment. Also, this class will have both a standing and floor exercise component. You will need to bring a mat, a strap for stretching and a firm small pillow or folded blanket to use for support while sitting and lying down. Sylvia Emmons RN MA will lead the class. She is an Exercise Physiologist certified in Yoga and Pilates.
