Service Leaders: Rev. Chris Bell, Eric Fischer, Zoey Wilson, Sadie Sonntag
Special Music by the Choir and a full band. Oh yeah!
This topic was a winner at last year’s Service Auction, continuing a congregational tradition of demanding that Rev. Chris preach on a bizarre topic now and again. Tommy, by The Who, is one of the most significant albums in all rock, a full “opera” about an abused child turned would-be messiah that just happens to be one of Rev. Chris’s earliest and most enduring favorites. Today, we will consider the teachings of this masterpiece on the trials of childhood and adolescence, awakening, false prophets, and a bunch of other deep and heavy stuff, while we totally rock out.
