Issues in Mental Health
Our society is becoming increasingly aware of the serious mental health issues that affect many segments of the population. This session hopes to explore the problems and responses for the mental health challenges that face the homeless, youth, the elderly and others. We also will examine the mental health system of care to better understand how it can be accessed and will conclude with reflections by a local minister on understanding mental illness as a pastoral and religious concern.

Violence in the Name of God: The Problem of Religious Extremism
This course will examine extremism and violence as aspects of religious life common to all religious traditions. Drawing on insights from history, theology and security studies, we will seek to understand what motivates violent religious extremism and what we can do as Christians and responsible citizens to diminish its influence. We will begin with an overview of key concepts and dynamics, then consider examples from various traditions, including Christianity. Micah C.
24 hours that changed the world
No single event in human history received more attention than the the last twenty-four hours of the life of Jesus of Nazareth. Through the DVD of this Lenten study, we will travel to the Holy Land to visit the sites where those earth-shaking events took place. We will walk where Jesus walked and see what he may have seen, along the road that led to the pain and triumph of the cross. Huda Kandalaft
The Awakening of Hope
This is a series of DVD presentations by Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, one of the leaders of a contemporary rediscovery of Christian faith and community in urban North America. This is something of a contemporary catechism, celebrating lives and stories that make sense only because the gospel is true. Rev. Andrew Johnston
