role in the etheric hierarchy.

program on The Psychology of Successful Aging. Dr. Johnson will discuss
some of the latest scientific research on steps older adults can take
to make their later years as meaningful, happy and successful as possible.

Kelly will introduce students to the dramatic nature of Vivaldi's music,
his fervent interest in Italian musical theater and unorthodox spirituality.
The Lost Gospel of Q begins. Michael Carter will introduce
students to followers of perhaps the earliest pre-canonical gospel Jesus
movement, whose text reveals a much different view of Jesus through
words that may have come directly from his mouth.
Lost Christianities will begin with Michael Carter
leading students through the 200 year period after the death of Jesus
during which a diverse landscape of followers produced many writings,
most of which were excluded by the surviving proto-orthodox church.
