IMS hung tough through the second with baskets from Miller and Riley Schmieder to make it a 20-41 score at the half. Mediapolis broke it wide open in the third outscoring IMS 32-17 in the period to build a 73-37 lead, helping them cruise to a 86-42 win.

Thursday, November 20th was the day for Lee Ebersole’s Christianity in the World Arena class to do some visiting. Part of the purpose of the class is to learn about the main world religions, and so the trip provided the opportunity for students to have some face to face interaction with persons of some of those religions. The Agudas Achim Synagogue, the Iowa City Zen Center and the Iowa City Mosque were the destinations of the day. During each visit, there was a time of input from the representative of each place and then a time for questions from the class.
“Our interaction with leaders from these three religions gave us a chance to hear directly about Judaism, Buddhism and Islam.” commented Lee Ebersole, instructor. “I want the students to learn from both what we read and also learn through direct conversation with people of those religions.”
Saturday, Nov 22, the Yoder Auction Building in Frytown was buzzing with activity as 16 teams of 12 people from our local community packed over 27,500 meals to be distributed by “Kids Against Hunger” in Liberia for those infected with the Ebola virus. The ten Compassion Club members pictured above plus Breana’s brother, Brant, and advisor Gloria Yoder, worked a shift from 10 – 11 am. measuring, weighing, and sealing bags of rice, dried vegetables, vitamins, minerals, and chicken flavoring that results in a well balanced meal providing all nine essential amino acids required for complete nutrition. One day each month students and staff are allowed to pay $2 to “ditch the dress code”. The money raised from the November day went towards paying for some of these meals.
