Origin Series: On Patience | Opening Lecture Featuring Dr. Kelly Kapic

May 19 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm CDT

The aim of this series focused on patience is to explore the impact of this virtue exemplified in the habits of the believer, including the artist. What does patience say to us who are interested in effecting the common good both with what we create and our faith? Through this series, the hope is to unearth something different from the frantic, anxious pace of the modern world and explore how patience influences, encourages, and informs the artist’s work.

We are excited to begin this series with a lecture from Dr. Kelly Kapic who is featured in our On Patience reader. This opening with be both in-person and live streamed.

DATE: Thursday, May 19th
TIME: 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm CST
LOCATION: In-person at Central Commons | Online via Zoom

Dr. Kapic is professor of theological studies at Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, Georgia. He is the award-winning author or editor of more than 15 books, including Embodied Hope, The God Who Gives , and You’re Only Human, a portion of which is featured in our ‘On Patience’ reader. Kapic is also part of a John Templeton Foundation grant studying “Christian Meaning-Making, Suffering, and the Flourishing Life.” Kelly and his wife Tabitha have two children, Jonathan and Margot.

Origin, an Art House Dallas program, seeks to establish a wholeness and connectedness between spiritual formation, imagination, and the arts with the ultimate intent to establish a sacred perspective on how we individually and collectively live and create. We believe that beauty shown through the arts, culture, and creation holds a powerful ability to form the way we see ourselves, the world, and our interaction with both. As embodied creatures made in the image of the Triune God we must consider the formation of our senses, our emotions, and our ideas. This same incarnate God calls us to be like him in our participation of cultivating goodness, truth, and beauty. There are few things more sacred in life than points of origin. The point from where thoughts, ideas, and perspectives begin holds potent ability to echo and endure through generations and shape how people and cultures both speak and act. How a person interacts with and thinks about the world is the essence of living and the result of a starting point.
