Job is coming, Look Busy!

Oddly enough, there wasn't overwhelming interest in the Deuteronomy/Numbers class I just finished teaching last week.

More oddly, we had more than a dozen people every night of the Deuteronomy/ Numbers class I just finished teaching last week.

Compared to our other Bible classes, this was a small one. Compared to the number of UU's who gather around to discuss those two books of the Torah, I think we broke some national records.
Many thanks to Walter Brueggemann who devoted untold hours to writing a commentary on Deuteronomy that was helpful, scholarly, religiously liberal, and affordable.

It is with much excitement that I announce the dates for our next class. We will start a 3 part class on Job on Tuesday, April 17 at 6:30. We may have to have a 4th class.

This class is based on the outstanding continuing education course I took at Union-PSCE on Job by renowned biblical scholar Dr. Samuel Balentine. I am so excited about that class that I may have to do some power point, some handouts, and some interpretive dance. Just kidding. About the handouts.

So mark your calendars now. Job is coming!
