The Tony Award-winning musical CHICAGO has made its way to Broadway in Detroit!  Bethany and I were there for opening night at the Fisher TheatreShowbiz veteran John O’Hurley starred as Billy Flynn, and I was pleasantly surprised at his vocal ability and command on the stage. 

ChicagoSet in a 1920s women’s correctional facility, CHICAGO is a story of scandal, suspense and fame…We follow Roxie Hart (Tracy Shayne) from the murder of her lover to the highly publicized trial! 

My favorite part of any musical is, of course, the ability to watch a story unfold through each show-stopping performance. This edgy musical did not lack in that department.  I sang along to “Razzle Dazzle,” “Mister Cellophane,” “Class,” and, of course, my favorite…”ALL THAT JAZZ” (performed by the sultry Terra C. Mcleod as Velma)

ChicagoWhether you’ve seen the Oscar-winning film or you’re experiencing the entire show for the first time, you will love CHICAGO! Catch it at the Fisher Theatre – home of Broadway in Detroit – until May 22nd!

You know you love me, XOXO

        There are many Christians who are aivetcly involved in their local church, community, workplace, and home practicing what Hunter calls “faithful presence.” What is important to note is that Hunters’ theology of faithful presence embraces an understanding of power and influence as well. On pages 247-248 of “To Change the World,” Hunter comments on power noting that it is a given of social life. We live in sets of relationships, and as such power is present. How we use that power as Christians is critically important. Hunter reminds us that power not be exercised thoughtlessly, in passive conformity to the ways of the world; but rather, where exercised, “power must conform to the way of Jesus: rooted in intimacy with the Father, rejecting the privileges of status, oriented by self-giving compassion for the needs of others, and not only noncoercive toward those outside the community of faith, but committed indiscriminately to the good of all.”With our heart or spirit oriented in this manner of understanding faithful presence, and through the filling and empowerment of the Holy Spirit, we can proceed both individually and collectively, to continue to breathe peace, joy, and health, temporal and eternal, into Canada.
