Albany: LECTURE ‘Van Gogh and Nature’

July 16, 2015 at Albany Institute of History & Art in Albany.

SPEAKER: Richard Kendall, Clark Art Institute, Curator at Large

Exhibition curator Richard Kendall will discuss the research and origin of the exhibition and catalogue as well as the significance of its theme.

Fundamental to the project has been a close study of the artist’s work throughout his career and his rarely discussed preoccupation with the natural world, from flowers, birds, and insects to the majestic landscapes of rural Holland and the south of France.

Still underestimated in many approaches to Van Gogh’s art is his passion for reading, which included guides to nature, poetry that addressed the countryside, and literally hundreds of novels in Dutch, English, and French that celebrated rural life in an age of expanding towns and cities. This issue will also be explored in the lecture, which will be illustrated with works from ‘Van Gogh and Nature’ and other sources.

Free admission

Albany: “Jesus: because “try harder” isn’t working!”

July 12, 2015 at Colonie Christian Life Center in Albany.

Ever notice yourself doing what you don’t want to do, and not doing what you do want to do? Some may respond, “yes, so that’s why I try to follow my conscience and be true to myself.”

But what if your conscience is broken and your “self” is destructive?

Many new believers in first century Rome were trying to live out the Christian life by “feeding” their good self and “starving” their bad self. It’s what their former pagan training had taught them.

Paul wrote to tell them, “the inner struggle is real… but the enemy isn’t some part of you. It’s all of you!”

So what hope is there? The Gospel tells us of a new Advocate for the struggle.

Come early, grab a cup of coffee, meet friendly people, enjoy engaging music, and learn what the Bible says to us about truth and life.

Albany: The Soul Fallacy: What Science Shows We Gain From Letting Go of Our Soul Belief

July 12, 2015 at Sage College of Albany in Albany.

t’s not everyday you get to meet someone like Rutgers professor Julien Musolino. The soul doesn’t exist! In his new book, The Soul Fallacy, he argues that the existence of the soul is a testable hypothesis – one that’s failed time and time again to hold up against the weight of scientific evidence. He also encourages us not to fret, because the nonexistence of the soul is no reason to be sad, in fact, quite the opposite
