Jost to be LRP speaker

Tabor College faculty member Lynn Jost will present “Zimbabwe: A Global Experience” for the next Learning in Retirement Program Thursday, Oct. 2.

Jost is associate professor of biblical and religious studies at Tabor. He joined the faculty in 1990 and received the Clarence Hiebert Excellence in Teaching Award in 2001.

Jost works on various committees at the college and currently serves as chair of the division of humanities. He also sponsors students on annual leadership training trips to Mexico in connection with Youth Missions International.

Jost graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Tabor, the master of divinity from Mennonite Biblical Seminary, Fresno, Calif., and a doctorate in preaching from Vanderbilt University.

The Oct. 9 session of Learning in Retirement will feature Jimpsie Doyel, Camden, Ind., who will present “The Rocks Cry Out: Stories from Stones.”

Doyel will bring a small sampling of her rock collection, using stones to illustrate biblical teaching as well as prompting mini-lessons from life.

Both sessions will begin at 10:10 a.m. in the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center at Tabor College.

Fees for each session are $4 or $15 per semester. Older adults who have never attended Learning in Retirement are encouraged to attend free of charge. Registration and discount cards for lunch in the cafeteria will be available at the door.
