Angels appear throughout the Hebrew Scriptures and the New Testament. In early biblical passages their presence is elusive. We are uncertain  whether a biblical character is an angel, a human, or even God’s own self. As the angelic tradition develops, angels acquire distinctive roles and names. This course will examine the presence of angels in the Bible according to their assigned ministries of worshiping, communicating, ruling, judging, and guarding. Because angels act as God’s agents, studying angels can help us appreciate the very nature of our God.

In these troubled times, people seek to discover what Thomas Merton called our hidden wholeness.  Our hidden wholeness links to our well-being and our well-being is rooted in spirituality.  This four-week series will examine a spiritual foundation that can frame a focus on human well-being that uncovers and develops our wholeness.

This will be a different art museum experience.  It will be a semi-self-directed Lenten retreat involving the participant’s reflection on a single piece of art.  The retreat leader will prepare participants for choosing a piece of art for personal reflection.  The art work one settles on can speak to us spiritually without having a conventional religious subject. It can be an icon that serves as a window into God.
