Ethos … Pathos … Logos
A new class! Why do bad things happen to good people? How does one stand up to evil? Are you interested in passion, love, or romance? Or… maybe you have gone through terrible tragedies, intense suffering, loss and grief? How about a Shakespearean-like drama that rejects exclusivism/radical nationalism while teaching racial tolerance? Does life ever seem like an endless groundhog day where nothing makes sense? These questions and more will be addressed as we look at the wisdom literature of ancient Israel. Old Testament Writings kicks off this Wednesday from 6:15 - 7:30 p.m. There is no cost. Study materials are provided. Bring a friend. Feel free to bring your supper if pressed for time.
