  • Coffee provided.
  • Participants are encouraged, but not required to view the 1973 film, "Jesus Christ Superstar" before the event.

About the Concept:

This event is part of our "Saturday Sessions" workshop series.  Join Russ with his energetic, fast-paced, theatrical, and (sometimes) comedic style as he engages the audience in some topic of religious studies.  All sessions are presented in an academic, yet accessible manner, making it ideal for individuals of all ages and educational backgrounds.
