This is open to all City of Light members, guests, friends, family, the neighborhood... It's also open Emerson students for credit provided they stay for the discussions in 6 out of the 8 classes and present a project.

The Book of Ruth

Sundays, 10:00 AM
With Stephanie Knight, Instructor

Sundays at 10AM in Emerson Hall this class offers discussion and insight into the Book of Ruth. Join us as we study this Old Testament Book and bring life and meaning to the story. "And Ruth said, entreat me not to leave thee, and to return from following after thee; for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge; thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God." Here is represented human love raised to divine love by its willingness to leave the love of the unreal; to follow after the real; to go wherever true love leads; in other words to love in the highest and the best degree, and to acknowledge and to worship the God of love. This series of classes runs for 4 weeks. We invite you to learn about the power of commitment, the joy of believing and the rewards of living the promises of God.
