A STIMULATING TEN MINUTE CONVERSATION:
I met Dave and Gwen McCoy about twenty years ago when I was a pastor. Wonderful folks!
Dave was one of our best Sunday school teachers. Dave is amillennial in his understanding of so-called “end-times” matters or at least he used to be. The church was and remains premillennial. I am now “agnostic” on how it will all end/begin anew, but that topic is for another time.
Back to Dave. Our elders still allowed Dave to teach and several sat in his class. Indeed, they told me on a regular basis how much they were learning from Dave.
Though Dave’s training is in the sciences (he holds a Ph.D. in organic chemistry), he has a keen interest in literature and the arts. I vividly remember seeing several of his works of art on display throughout his home.
Well, what I saw about twenty years ago, you can see for yourself via the marvels of the Internet. By the way, the picture above depicts Ecc. 9:4 about how it is “better to be a live dog than a dead lion.”
A wonderful series of short teaching videos on art from the Civil War era. You can learn a lot about history and culture from the art of the period.
