Book Discussion Group
Our enthusiastic group of 15 continue to enjoy reading and discussing a variety of books. Class sets of books with accompanying study guides and discussion questions are hired from the College of Adult Education in Melbourne. Cost $80 to $103. No vacancies at present.
Christianity and Feminism
In 2016 we looked at the stories of women in the Hebrew and Christian Testaments as well as the persona of divine Sophia in both Testaments. In 2017 we will look at the experience of women in the Church in the 2000 years since Jesus, and the development of Christian theology which has not always been kind or fair to women.
Discussion Group - Monday AM / PM
Discussions range across a variety of approximately 25 new weekly current affairs topics, plus what the attendees of the mixed group bring. We strive for lively movement through the talking points.
Dynamic Life - Lecture Series
Do you like to have your mind challenged or do you like to stay in your comfort zone? If keeping your mind open to new ideas, some confronting, some thought provoking, some educational, then Dynamic Life Lecture Series is for you. A different speaker each week, perhaps a prominent community member, a University Professor, an inspirational young adult or a Councillor could be on the programme.
Peace Education Programme
The programme consists of ten one hour DVD presentations based on excerpts from International Ambassador for Peace, Prem Rawat’s public speeches. Each week the focus is on a particular theme eg. Choice, Hope, Appreciation, Inner Strength etc. An introduction to the programme will be presented at a time to be arranged a week prior to Term 1.
This group will be very interactive for all participants. There will be no restrictions on topics to be discussed. Group members will be encouraged to offer topics and subjects for discussion within the group. The group leader will have access to the lab computer as a useful tool to source information.
