Teachers, did you know that preschoolers laugh approximately 450 times per day and an adult only 15 times a day? How many times do you laugh, giggle, or even grin in a given day? This class can provide a roadmap to put more laughter, joy, and humor in your life. Patch Adams, whose mirthful medicine is featured in the powerful movie starring Robin Williams, knows the inner side of healing. The movie reminds us that some of the most important factors in healing are not high-tech marvels but ordinary factors such as love, compassion, friendship, and hope. This class of using humor in your life and in the classroom is not about joke telling. This course is to help you reactivate and experience the healing power of laughter, joy and humor and will give you the prescription to help yourself and others feel healthier and happier.

Care for the creation is crucial to human survival and of fundamental importance to Christian faith and life. This workshop will explore how God’s original creation of humanity, “in his image”, is critical to understanding our role in caring for and tending to the needs of creation. We will explore how Christ’s reconciling work includes all of God’s creation, not just human beings. The Biblical idea of a “community of creation” will be developed, showing how human beings are fellow members with God’s other creatures and that any true reconciliation to God must involve the entire creation. The Christian’s call to love God and others ought to be reflected in the care for all of creation.

The Psalms have been the original “university” that Hebrews and Christians have attended for over 2,500 years in order to learn how to pray, to answer God. This workshop will explore the nature of the ancient prayers of Israel found in the Book of Psalms. They give us guidance in our attempt to respond to life, in all its complexities.

The 150 Psalms offer an “anatomy of all the parts of the soul”. Every emotion is expressed in the Psalms. All who pray, Christians and Jews alike, find their praying “voice” in the psalms. These “psalmic prayers” give us ways and words to respond to God.
