Pastor Paul’s modest church of twenty years ago now has a congregation of thousands, classrooms for Sunday school, a coffee shop, and much more. But today Paul will preach a sermon that will shake the foundations of his church’s beliefs. What happens when something we believe will always remain the same suddenly changes? A finalist at the Humana Festival in 2014, this play opened off-Broadway soon afterward. In 2016, it was chosen as the eighth most-produced new play by American Theatre Magazine.
