REDDING, Calif. - Simpson University for Seniors is encouraging early registration for the following class, offered on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in March, starting the 3rd:

Seven Events that Shaped Christian Doctrine: This course will trace the development of the doctrines of the Church from the time of Constantine until the split between eastern and western Christendom in 1054. With only a few exceptions, they are the doctrines that Roman Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant churches have in common. But they were hotly debated in the first Christian millennium, and required councils convened by emperors and backed by state authority to resolve. This information is vital to the understanding of the church today. Presented by Fr. Jeffrey Smith.

Simpson University for Seniors is a program designed for adults of any age who are interested in studying a variety of topics in monthlong, not-for-credit courses.

The classes meet from 10:20 to 11:20 a.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on Simpson’s campus, for a total of 10 one-hour instructional sessions. Courses are taught by university professors and professionals in their field of expertise, and there are no tests, grades or homework.
