Pastor Paul’s church started as a modest storefront. Now it houses thousands, with a baptismal font as big as a swimming pool. Today should be a day of celebration. But Pastor Paul is about to preach a sermon that will shake the foundation of his congregation’s beliefs. “The Christians” is a play that takes an unflinching look at faith and its power to unit or divide. A panel discussion will follow the play.

Since then, they’ve been cultivating their wide-ranging musical influences in songs that delve into love and life through haunting lyrics, soaring harmonies, and dazzling instrumental proficiency. As Grammy award-winning producer Lloyd Maines puts it, “These guys should be playing every major festival in the country. They bring it all to the stage and deliver it in a big way.”
