“THE QUESTION OF GOD: C.S. LEWIS AND SIGMUND FREUD” 12 NOON WEDNESDAY FALL THEOLOGY CLASS BEGINS OCTOBER 16
This year our 12 Noon Wednesday Fall Theology Class explores the topic “The Question of God: C.S. Lewis and Sigmund Freud” with Dr. Armand Nicholi on DVD. PBS writes, “How do we find meaning and purpose in our lives? Is there a God? How do we reconcile conflicting claims of love? How do we cope with the problem of suffering and the inevitability of death? This series addresses these issues. The series will frame these issues in the eventful lives of two men who held diametrically opposed world views: Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis.” The class will meet on October 16, 23, 30, November 6, 13, and 20. The basic format for each weekly session includes watching a video segment followed by discussion. Every week we will enjoy coffee, tea, and something to nibble on. Join us even if you can only make one session.

YOGA FOR BUSY PEOPLE
Our church cares about the whole person—body, mind, and spirit. To further this mission, our Center For Wellbeing is proud to announce the return of “Yoga For Busy People,” led by certified yoga instructor, holistic health coach and Manhasset mom, Stacey Kelly. Drop your child at nursery school, put your kids on the bus, or just take a break from work and come enjoy a 1 hour class that is just about you—body, mind, and spirit. If you can't get to the studio or are intimidated by yoga at the gym, “Yoga For Busy People” is perfect for you. In this beginner level 60 minute class, you can focus on taking care of yourself while moving, stretching, and strengthening your body in a supportive and relaxed environment. There is a $15 walk in fee. RSVP is not required. Please bring your own yoga mat and towel. The class meets in the sanctuary narthex (foyer), Tuesdays and Thursdays, at 9:30 AM.
