Living Waters Lutheran Church in Lino Lakes is presenting a lecture in art series about the intersections of beliefs in the Bible and the Qur’an. The final two sessions will be held between services on Sunday, May 11, and Sunday, May 18, starting at about 9:45 a.m.

The series, called “The Three Faces of Mary,” centers on three biblical figures: Miriam, sister of Moses; Mary, mother of Jesus; and Mary Magdalene. At the center of each presentation will be a display of four 11-foot-by-16-foot tapestries, hand-painted by Hend Al-Monsour, an Arab artist who depicts the figures surrounded by four languages: Hebrew, Arabic, Greek and Latin.

The series is free and open to the public. The church is at 865 Birch St., Lino Lakes. For further information, call 651-481-0220, or email
