Albertson College Presents FLITE for Faith Education

2006. 05. 01.

A new course offered by three Albertson College of Idaho professors is aimed at giving Treasure Valley adults a deeper look at faith.

The Faith & Life Institute for Theological Education, or FLITE, offers students an opportunity to actively engage in an ecumenical and academic exploration of faith. The professors will offer a series of three different one night mini-courses. Each course will be offered once in Boise at the Cathedral of the Rockies and once in Simplot Dining Hall on the Albertson College of Idaho campus.

The Jewish Joy of Law taught by CofI History Professor Howard Berger is the first in the series. The course will be offered on May 10 at the Cathedral of the Rockies and again on May 11 on the college campus.

Denny Clark, Associate Professor of Philosophy and Religion invites students to attend a course on Mary Magdalene, entitled Mary Magdalene: Jesus' Beloved Disciple? The course will be held on May 17 at the Cathedral of the Rockies and on May 18 at ACI.

The final course in the series, Digging the Hebrew Bible: Using Archeology to Understand the Bible and its History, will be taught by history professor and Vice President of Academic Affairs Mark Smith. The course is being offered in Boise on May 24 and in Caldwell on May 25.

The courses will run from 7-9:30 p.m. at a cost of $5 per course. High school and college students are welcome and encouraged to attend free of charge. More information is available by contacting Denny Clark, 459-5876.
