LRU's Institute for Faith and Learning offers free class to public

Lenoir-Rhyne University's Institute for Faith and Learning is sponsoring weekly "Turning Points in Christian History" classes, beginning Monday, August 28, in Newton Hall at St. Andrew's Lutheran Church.

Dr. Jonathan Schwiebert, Associate Professor of Religion at LRU, will lead class sessions, which are free and open for public attendance. No sign up or registration is necessary. All sessions run each Monday night from 7 to 9 p.m., through November 13.

"Turning Points in Christian History" will explore the key moments that shaped Christian history. From the early martyrs to the great schism and the modern missionary movement, the course will be an overview of the church's history as it developed and changed in response to new historical challenges.

The Lenoir-Rhyne Institute for Faith and Learning endeavors to provide programming that will contribute to and enrich a culture of the intellect that is theologically based. This institute's programs are directed at Christians of all traditions.
