With Rev John Karn

Most of the movies run 1 hr, so that is from 7 pm to 8 pm. You can leave when it's over or stay for a discussion of the main points of the movie from 8 pm to 9 pm. 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 Romans

Sundays, 10:00 AM
With Stephanie Knight, Instructor

City of Light offers this informative class on Sundays at 10AM in Emerson Hall. The class offers discussion and insight into "Why was the faith of the Roman Christians proclaimed throughout the whole world"? Join us as we study the Apostle Paul's letter to the Romans. Delivered by one of the only named female ministers in the New Testament, this book contains some of Paul's most beautiful writing. Learn about "walking in newness of life" and transformation by the renewing of your mind. Paul's ancient thought is actually what we call "new thought" today.

A New Earth

Thursdays 10:00 AM

With Rev Dr T Paul Graetz, Instructor

A study on the popular book by Eckhart Tolle, "A New Earth - Awakening to Your Life's Purpose", with instructor Rev Dr Paul Graetz. Discover a new state of consciousness and follow the path to truly fulfilling existence. This study addresses our attachment to ego and the dysfunction it creates and how we can transcend it and experience our personal happiness. Are you ready to awaken to Your Life's Purpose?
