In February, we begin a six-week study of Pop
Culture and Faith. We begin the conversation on February 16, with
Victor Hugo’s epic story of Les MisÚrables.
you’ve read the novel, seen the Broadway musical, heard its
soundtrack, or seen the several screen adaptations, you already know
the power in the story. In the six-week study, The Grace
of Les MisÚrables author and pastor Matt Rawle dives into six
ideals found in the story— grace, justice, poverty, revolution,
love, and hope—each represented by a character in Hugo’s story.
Rawle brings us to the intersection of Church and Pop Culture by
drawing parallels between the iconic story and musical and our
Christian calling, inspiring us to both understand our faith and
live it out in the world.”
