Last night I was in Sydney and saw the musical "Wicked". If you haven't seen it yet, please don't read this post below the tine as it contains spoilers!

I found the themes not only to be fascinating, but also pertinent from the Gospel point of view. For instance, the idea of how the label "wicked" is used to stigmatize anyone who challenges the status quo, just as it was with Christ Who was accused in His time of being "a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of publicans and sinners" (Matthew 11:19) Also, the idea that no one is "naturally" wicked, but that wickedness is a distortion of something which is naturally good- seen not only in Elphaba the "Wicked" Withch of the West, but also her sister.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
