This Sunday’s service: Life lessons from musical theater

Brynner_1977_programThis Sunday, July 20, our lay-led summer service will be presented by church member Lois Markham on the topic of “Everything I Need to Know I Learned from Musical Theater.” Here is her preview of what to expect:

When I saw the movie version of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “The King and I” at the age of 11, I was hooked for good on musical theater. I was enchanted by the music and entertained by the story, but most important I was transported into a world way beyond the insular homogenized environment of my North Shore upbringing. For close to 60 years, my love affair with musical theater has taught me some important lessons about the larger world I live in. During this service, I’ll share some of those insights with you as we enjoy some familiar and not-so-familiar songs from musical theater.

The service will begin at 10:30 a.m., followed by coffee and fellowship at about 11:30. Visitors are always welcome. Our regular church services and Religious Exploration Program will resume on Sunday, September 7.
