The Line Between Physical Reality & Spiritual Reality,

Near-death experiences, out of body experiences, past life memories, and waking dreams. Come prepared to share your own experiences and we will discuss if these are real or if they are merely tricks of the brain.  Free and open to the community.

 

Friday, January 10, 10:00-11:30 am

Do animals have souls? There is a lot of evidence that animals are aware of another reality. Some species watch over their dead for a day before moving on. Others perform rituals that have no apparent utilitarian purpose. And many pet owners, when their pets die, are convinced they have gone to a “pet heaven.”  Free and open to the community. 

 

Friday, February 14, 10:00-11:30 am

Is God All Powerful & All Loving? If so, how do we explain the Nazi Holocaust, and how Hitler, Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, Pot Pol, Kim II Sung, Castro, and other Communist leaders killed 100 million of their own people, many of whom met horrible deaths? The victims had no option to exercise their God given free will.  How does this change our perception of God?  Or does it?  Free and open to the community.

Beginning Spanish  (Tuesdays at 1 pm)

Meets November 12, 19, 26, December 3, 10, 17, January 14, 21, 28, February 11, 18, 25

In this year long course we use Conversational Spanish in 7 Days by Shirley Baldwin and Sarah Boas since it focuses on the most common, everyday situations you’ll encounter in Spanish-speaking countries.  Everything is explained in clear, concise English so if you have to miss a class, you can easily keep up with what we are doing in class.  We meet three times a month, and cover about a lesson a month:  during September-December we work with learning the present tense of regular verbs, in January we learn how to use object pronouns, and then in February add irregular verbs, in March stem-changing verbs, and in April reflexive verbs as we talk about daily activities.  In May we turn to a past tense, the present perfect, and then in June look forward, to the future tense.  Finally in July and August we end our year’s study of Spanish by working with the two simple past tenses.

If you are looking for a basic course in Spanish, and can commit to spending at least two to three hours a week (ideally 20-30 minutes a day!) studying Spanish, then this is the course for you!  But if you just want to learn a few phrases for travel, this course is more than you really want.

Meets November 12, 19, 26, December 3, 10, 17, January 14, 21, 28, Febraury 11, 18, 25

In this year long course we use McGraw Hill’s Spanish Conversation by Jean Yates in the series of “Practice Makes Perfect”.  The text serves as a guide for expanding your conversational fluency through the use of realistic everyday dialogues.  The exercises in the text will be complemented by handouts that include personal questions which make use of the expressions presented in each lesson.  During September and October we shall be reviewing the two key simple past tenses, the preterit and imperfect, which were introduced at the end of the Beginning Spanish course.  In this course the student’s knowledge of the basic structure of the language will be expanded to include complex sentences with dependent noun, adjective, and adverbial clauses which often require the use of the subjunctive mood. 

We shall be meeting three times a month and cover about a lesson a month:  the first week working with the exercises in the text, the second week with the personal questions on the handouts, and the third week, completing the final exercise in the text which usually entails writing a short paragraph using as many of the expressions presented in the lesson as possible.
