The Gospel According to Vincent
Led by Dean Reggie Kidd
Vincent van Gogh is an able docent for the person in quest of an honest and brace faith. His heart was broken at the plight of the poor. He felt himself a failure at ministry and at art. And yet, inspired by Jesus's Sermon on the Mount and by centuries of saints' faith, he tried to see - and to help the rest of us to see - God in all of life.
Kathleen Powers Erickson's book At Eternity's Gate: The Spiritual Vision of Vincent van Gogh (Eerdmans 1998) uses the artist's paintings and life to capture her own portrait of a man drawn to Jesus who brings healing to sufferers and life to the dying.
Class participants are encouraged (but not required) to acquire a copy of Erickson's book (available from 3rd party vendors via amazon.com). Class sessions will comprise of discussions of the chapters of the book, relevant pieces of art, and biblical themes.
"To Live Is Christ"
A Women's Bible Study
led by Traci Barber
Join Beth Moore on a journey into the life and heart of Paul the apostle. Along the way you will get to know the "Apostle to the Gentiles" in a new way. You will see that typical attitudes about Paul - that he was aloof and hard, that he was anti-woman - do not reflect the man who served so faithfully and loved so heartily. This study will challenge and encourage you. You will gain a new appreciation of servanthood.
