Lawrence Leung to Host 2016 Melbourne Secular Sermon
If New Year's has left you in an existential rut, comedian Lawrence Leung is here to sort you out. As part of The School of Life's Secular Sermon series, Leung will be philosophising on the importance of not knowing.
Leung will argue that the unknown is one of life's strongest catalysts for both creativity and fear – driving the human spirit to seek answers, but snaring the road with psychological traps that mar reason along the way. The sermon comes off the back of his successful documentary series, Unbelievable.
Naturally, no sermon is complete without music. Providing the secular hymns will be award winning musical guest Dan Kelly, hot off the heels of his latest album Leisure Panic!
The School of Life has been hosting their Secular Sermon series since 2008, inviting cultural figureheads and artists to explore ideas and values relevant to contemporary society.
Lawrence Leung will tackle the big questions on Sunday January 17 at Deakin Edge, Federation Square. Tickets through School of Life.
