Lincoln Christian College and Seminary given bronze sculpture of Peter and Jesus for 60th anniversary     Send a link to a friend

[MAY 15, 2004]  Lincoln Christian College and Seminary celebrated the 60th anniversary Founder's Day at the Earl C Hargrove auditorium on May 4. The celebration was highlighted by a gift from anonymous alum who presented the college with a bronze composition entitled "Divine Servant."  The sculpture is a work of art by Max Greiner Jr. of Max Greiner, Jr. Designs of Kerrville, Texas.

Greiner based his design on ancient catacomb drawings of Peter and Jesus made by a first-century artist. The sculpture depicts Christ washing the feet of the Apostle Peter. Greiner stated, "There are times when the message conveyed by art transcends the art itself, and the artist."

The anonymous donor of the "Divine Servant" gave the $40,000 work of art to the college in honor of Dr. James D. Strauss, professor emeritus at Lincoln Christian Seminary. He was reminded of his college years at the institution when he saw the work and recalled Dr. Strauss' inspiring message "The Order of the Towel."

The bronze sculpture will be displayed at the front of the Earl C Hargrove auditorium upon completion of renovation in late August.
