Dear Friends of Alcuin,

We have much about which to be excited!


Certificate of Christian Thought (CCT)
Alcuin Study Center is excited to announce the launch of our Certificate of Christian Thought (CCT) program, beginning this Fall semester. At the heart of the program are four Core Courses that provide the why behind the what of everything else we do:
  1. Ideas that Shape Us
  2. Virtuous Thinking & Ordered Loves
  3. Seeing God's World through God's Word
  4. Institutions & Authorities
You can read more about the CCT here.

Other Programming
We continue to offer other programs as well—what we call Events & Shorter Classes. These are catch-all categories comprised of everything from single evening lectures to multi-week classes—basically anything that isn't a Core Course—Faith & Medicine speaker & panel series, Sundance Short Film nights, Biblical Literacy classes, Literature & Theology classes, guest speakers, and a myriad of other things.

As always, participants may pick and choose a la carte whatever they wish to from our
menu of programs. The CCT program is by no means a requirement to be involved at Alcuin.

Expanding Our Space

We were incorporated in August 2020. Less than two years later, we are outgrowing our classroom space. So this summer we have begun talks with a contractor to knock out a wall and convert the garage (see above photos), thereby doubling the size of our classroom.

As the project gets underway, we'll let you know how you can help.
Alcuin Study Center Invited to Interview Cast of Hoosier Shakespeare Festival

This past spring we taught a course on the Theology of Macbeth. As we wrapped up the course, I realized that our local cultural center,  Minnetrista Museum & Gardens , was going to be hosting The Hoosier Shakespeare Festival's performance of the very same play. I reached out to Minnetrista's director of programming and then to the Festival's executive director about hosting a talkback session with the cast. They loved the idea, and the resulting questions were subsequently posted in the digital playbill (see above link).

The conversation with the cast was rich. ASC continually seeks to engage with the culture in redemptive ways, and this was such a great opportunity for exactly that. 


Watch the talkback session here.
Friends of Alcuin

The work of Alcuin Study Center would be impossible if not for our faithful Friends of Alcuin who support us with prayer and by giving financially. We are grateful for you. Please share this newsletter with somebody who might be interested in the work that we're doing.

We are in need of over $100,000 to reach our budget by the end of the year. If you are not a regular contributor to the work of Alcuin Study Center, please take some time to consider becoming one. The work we are doing is more important than ever in our increasingly fragmented world.
