Week One: Aug 8-13, 2005
"Families in the Bible"

© Beki Greenwood 2006   The Bible story is rich with families who live in relationship with the Lord. We are familiar with the idea that different individuals represent specific aspects of our inner lives; and we even know something of how the relationship between men and women influence their respective correspondential meaning. This week, we will be looking at families in the Bible, their makeup and family dynamics, and the correspondence of what we read about those families with the spiritual dynamics of our inner lives.

Week Two: Aug 15-20, 2005
"The Doctrine of Charity"

© Beki Greenwood 2008   Perhaps nothing is more fundamental to the New Church approach to life here on earth and our processs of spiritual regeneration (i.e. salvation) than the Doctrine of Charity. Charity is far more than giving money to the needy person on the corner or even to great and worthy causes: it is about who, what, and why we love and --- equally as important --- how we love. Doctrines by definition are about ideas, so in this week's lectures we will examine the ways of the heart together with the workings of the mind.
