October 20 Service at 10:30 AM
Four years ago I gave a talk at NSUU titled “Everything I Need to Know I Learned from Musical Theater.” Even as I wrote that talk, I realized there were so many more songs I wanted to talk about than I could fit into one service. Today, I will present Part II of my musical upbringing. This time, I focus on optimism, a trait I believe we must all cultivate ferociously as we face the many challenges of contemporary life. What does musical theater have to teach us about optimism? I’ll share some insights as we enjoy some glorious songs from musical theater, performed by members of the NSUU singing group.
