Standard offerings include fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, granola, baked pastries, orange juice (and another juice option). Fresh coffee or hot tea will start your morning off right!|
| Morning: ||Our early morning course will focus on Christianity and Culture, with Douglas Johnson. We will look at both culture and the Christian faith. We start out with two questions: What would be an acceptable definition of culture? What would be an acceptable definition of Christianity? We then have a very short review of the books listed. This is primarily to engender thought on the issue.
After a break for something to drink and some goodies, we will return to the classroom for our course titled "Is Liberalism a Dirty Word," with Robert Wiley. This morning, we'll be exploring the question 'which "ism" is better for man in a political society?' Trace the philosophical roots of Liberalism - Aristotle.
| Lunch: ||Lunch is served in the Galax dining room (typically from 12:15 - 1:15 p.m. The lunch menu varies each day, but normally features a salad bar, sandwich fixings, soup, and a yummy (light) dessert to top it off.|
| Afternoon: ||Time for some musical fun! Let's look at the History of Broadway and explore the 20s and 30s. The early days of Broadway were the days of Irving Berlin, Rodgers & Hart, Kern and Hammerstein, George Gershwin, and Cole Porter. The shows were often silly and forgettable, and usually nothing more than vehicles for the stars involved. But the music was sublime.
Throughout the week, we will discuss the writers and composers of the great shows, as well as some of the notable performers. We will examine how sociological forces (the changing roles of women and minorities, the youth movement of the 60’s) and technological innovations (radio, television, the LP album) have shaped the Broadway musical. And best of all, we will sing some of the great songs we remember from the good old days.
After class time, you'll have an opportunity to explore the Heritage Center and take a guided walk around Montreat.|
| Dinner: ||Assembly Inn Dining Room, Dinner, 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.|
