Worship and Prayer
Saturday Feb. 9, 9 p.m.

The Student Leadership Council will sponsor a prayer and worship event Saturday in the Academy Auditorium at 9 p.m.

The SLC women’s event coordinator Joslyn Rozema said the focus will be finding true satisfaction in God. “He fulfills us with joy and mercy and grace,” Rozema said.

The event will include times of both corporate prayer and prayer lead by individuals as well as special music and congregational singing. There will also be scripture reading and readings from the Puritan book of prayers, Valley of Vision.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
Feb. 11, 13, 14, 16

C.S. Lewis’ classic The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe will come to life in Performance Hall with performances Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday at 1, 3 and 7:30 p.m.

Audience members will have the chance to watch as the ancient lion Aslan takes on the infamous White Witch in a battle for the land of Narnia. Senior dramatic production major Callie Summer is directing the play, and she said her script is quite close to the story from the book.

It’s the tale of four children who wander into a world filled with talking animals, mythical creatures and its own set of villains—but it is a story with a deeper meaning. According to Summer, the storyline of Aslan redeeming a wayward child is parallel to that of Christ’s redemption of mankind. “It’s a wonderful allegory,” Summer said.

The program is filled with humor, suspense and action. “It is an absolutely magical story,” Summer said.
