The focus will be on active artists of the late 20th Century and early 21st Century. These active artists, some familiar and others less so, will be selected to represent a range of media, technique, subject matter, perspective, and national origin.
We will explore how Jesus related to his own family and his followers, including his mother Mary, Peter, Mary Magdalene, and "the beloved disciple." We will also consider how James the Lord's brother, the disciple Peter, and Paul the apostle got along with each other after Jesus' death and resurrection.
We will examine the lives of a variety of inspirational men and women, inspired by Eric Metaxas' two books Seven Women, and Seven Men.
The Lifelong Learning Institute of Elkhart County provides stimulating and affordable short courses in many fields for active seniors. Courses are held in fall and spring, in addition to a lecture series in midwinter.
