Course on the roll of mysticism offered
The New Smyrna Beach Interfaith Theology Club will hold a new 12-week video course on mysticism starting July 31.
The club meets at 3 p.m. each Tuesday at the Coronado Community United Methodist Church.
The sessions last about 90 minutes usually beginning with a 30-minute video presentation of an influential scholar followed by a give and take, Q&A discussion period.
Professor Marcus Borg will begin the course with a 45-minute lecture Tuesday, July 31, looking at key terms and notions surrounding the idea of "mysticism" (and it's reputable and disreputable past).
The video will be followed by a discussion on how group members react to the ideas of "mysticism" found in Mr. Borg's presentation.
All are welcome and the course is free to the public.
