Musical drama "Fifty Years Later" to debut on March 20

Lights shone on a stage, empty but for two narrators.  The first addressed the imaginary audience, her voice projecting nuance and well-timed emphasis.

“Diane Nash later said,” she paused and held character, turning imperceptibly toward the dark wings.  “Diane Nash later said…” Her brow furrowed and laughter erupted from the set behind her.

“I’m sorry,” chuckled the girl who would be Diane Nash.  “Where are we, page four?”

JOB Ministries: more than a job

At the Campus Ministries office in the Ad Building, there is a constant buzz of activity. Workers and their teams sit around tables and computers planning the next worship activity. Students hang out on the comfy couches and a rocking chair with a massaging seat cover.

The telephone rings. “Good-Morning-this-is-Campus-Ministries-how-may-we-help-you?” A student worker, fitting it all in one breath.
