God Takes Charge: The Gospel of Mark and the Kingdom of God

Presented by Scott Lewis, S.J.

The battle cry at the beginning of the ministry of Jesus was very stirring: 'The time is fulfilled; repent and believe the good news; the kingdom of God has come near'. What did the words mean in 1st Century Judea? How do the words color the narrative of Mark's Gospel? How should we understand them today? We will examine Mark's Gospel as the foundation of the Synoptic gospel accounts and the unique ways in which Mark narrates the story of Jesus.

Eight weeks starting Thursday April 3, 2014 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.

July 2014

In the Footsteps of Jesus, in Israel

This travel course offers a study tour in Israel presented by Patricia O'Reilly and Scott Lewis, S.J., from July 4 to July 17, 2014.

Israel the cradle of civilization is the birthplace of three of the world's major religions - It is where Joshua brought down Jericho's walls, it is where King Solomon built the First Temple, and it is where Jesus walked on water, cured the sick, was crucified and resurrected. It is where the prophet Mohammad ascended to heaven. This course examines the story of the Christian faith in the place where it all began. Many scholars consider the land of Israel the fifth Gospel. Immersing yourself in this land will bring you closer to the history, archeology, anthropology, culture, people and modern politics that spans over thousands of years. Israel is the Holy Land; a country where you will see the Bible come to life as you take a tour through the Scriptures." You’ll never be the same. Expect a Blessing! "Whoever has not seen Jerusalem in its splendor has never seen a fine city." - Babylonian Talmud (Succah, 51b)

Eleven program days, plus travel days, opportunity to participate in pre-travel sessions at Regis College, $250 plus travel, accommodation, insurance, food and incidental expenses.

January to March 2015

Painting as Spiritual Quest: The Religious Art of Maurice Denis, 1884-1943

Presented by Professor Gilles Mongeau, S.J.

Maurice Denis, a French painter active between 1884 and 1943, contributed by his artistic theories and painterly practice to the development of many of the major schools of painting in the early twentieth century, including Symbolism, neo-Impressionism, Fauvism, Cubism and the rise of abstraction in art. From the age of fifteen, in 1884, he was conscious of painting as a religious vocation, and as a form of Christian service to the wider culture. By reading his spiritual journal and contemplating his paintings, we will reflect together on the dialogue between our own religious faith and its cultural context today.

Eight weeks starting Wednesday, January 14, 2015 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.
