I first discovered the musical of Les Miserables back in 1990. That year I was in high school, and I was just discovering the world of musicals. I had discovered The Phantom of the Opera, which at that time starred Colm Wilkinson at the Pantages Theatre in Toronto. And so when I heard that Colm Wilkinson was also in Les Miserables, I decided to check it out for myself; and I was blown away by its powerful music and its powerful story of redemption, love, grace, sacrifice, and transformation. It somehow immediately spoke to my heart, and I think it touched on something that would facilitate my own journey into starting to go to church only a few years later.
Join us this Sunday as we begin a new series looking into the story of Les Miserables and how each of its characters experience and embody the transformative love of Jesus.
