Economic News Week: June 27, 2011
The DOW industrials dropped for the seventh time in eight weeks, falling 115.42 points, or 1% to 11,934.58, amid worries-once again about Greece and Italy regarding their own economic troubles. EU President Herman Van Rompuy said they were nearing approval on a new rescue program to take Athens until the end of 2014. President Barak Obama has joined talks regarding our own debt issues at the urging of both sides of the isle to head off a crucial debt ceiling expiration which could cause dramatic economic conditions here and abroad.
THE BIBLE AS LITERATURE The Bible is an important book in the Christian faith. Many people draw strength and courage from reading it and finding lessons for life. But the Bible is also an important literary work. It is a whole library in a single volume but we seldom look at it as literature. There is much to be gained by looking at plot, characters, settings, and other element s of literary critique. This is a seminar class engaged in examining two creation stories found in Genesis 1 & 2. Please bring your Bible—any translation is fine.
