Trinity Lutheran Church will host a "Lord of the Rings & Spirituality" discussion as part of its "Christ in the Culture" series at Trinity Lutheran School in Springfield.

 

There has been renewed interest in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings books after the phenomenally successful movies of the past decade. But there is so much more to the books and the movies than hobbits, orcs, elves, and dwarves. Some of the questions open to discussion include: what kind of spirituality is portrayed in the books and the movies; what does the battle between "good and evil" really look like; and is evil as easily recognizable in real life as it is in the movies and books.

 

Light refreshments will be available during the 90-minute presentation.            

Flame in Concert (Wed. Jul 13, 2016 8:00 pm)

Bruner Center at Illinois College

http://clearsightmusic.com/flame/

This concert is free!

 

Flame is a well-versed leader in the Christian hip-hop scene with a growing list of accolades, including a GRAMMY® nomination and multiple Dove and Stellar Award nominations. He also has a degree in biblical counseling from Louisville’s Southern Seminary, viewing rich biblical knowledge as essential to his ministry. In all his efforts, whether onstage, in school or operating a record label, FLAME is bridging the gap between the sacred and the secular. While his music is unashamedly Christian, he hopes it might also affect seekers as well.

 

“I just want to encourage the Christian and the non-Christian who may be interested in peeking over the fence of Christianity that in this faith—in this worldview—you can have true freedom.”
