January 18: Randal Christophel — Goshen Health: An Update and Overview

January 25: Carl Weaver — Forty-Three Years of Marine Biology
This spring, Weaver will lead his 43rd Goshen High School marine biology course in Florida, where his work has also connected with the Goshen College marine biology program. With the aid of PowerPoint slides and photos, he will present this popular program’s history, its varied and colorful experiences, some reasons it has flourished for so many years, and why he believes it will continue under new leadership. Weaver is completing his 49th and last year of teaching.

February 1: John A. Lapp, with Friends — Cuba
During 2016 more than a dozen Elkhart County residents visited Cuba. Five individuals representing three separate tours will join today’s panel. We will explore why we went to Cuba, and present our dominant impressions of its religion, society, and economy—questions American citizens will want to explore in renewed U.S.—Cuba relationships.

February 8: Leonard Garber — The Story of a Motorcycle Preacher
“Wow, what a ride!” Stories and reflections on the little-known hobby of motorcycling by a pastor and his spouse, Veva. They have encountered both approval and disapproval, as well as envy. In their travels they have enjoyed the beauty and breathed the aroma of wide-open spaces over some 75,000 miles from coast to coast and from north to south.

February 15: Richard Kauffman — Sleeping with Books
There is no place in the world like the Gladstone Library in Northeastern Wales—a library that draws scholars, writers, tourists, and people on spiritual retreat. The original book collection and endowment were donated by William Gladstone, who was prime minister of Britain four times in the late nineteenth century. He had read over 20,000 books, and collected over 30,000. Kauffman will share stories and photos from four weeks of residency there. You must put the Gladstone Library on your “bucket list”!

LLI’s spring courses offerings will be available soon.
