Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables is a truly epic story. Whether you’ve tackled the 1,400-page 19th century novel, witnessed the Broadway musical (and memorized its soundtrack), or seen the several screen adaptations of it, you already know the power of its story. During Lent, we’ll ponder the themes of grace, justice, poverty, revolution, freedom, hope, and love — each represented by a character in Hugo’s story. As these imperfect and relatable characters interact, we can see how these ideals work together (perhaps even in spite of each other) out in the world.
Please take some time to read the brainstorming packet, below, and watch (or read) “Les Misérables” before we gather at 12:30 pm for lunch in Fellowship Hall. The brainstorming will begin at 1:00 pm.
