Northwest Unitarian Universalist Congregation to Present THE WIT AND WISDOM OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN, 2/9
Northwest Unitarian Universalist Congregation is bringing one of the world's preeminent Abraham Lincoln actors, playwrights and scholars to Sandy Springs for a special President's Day Celebration appearance on Sunday, February 9th at 7:00 pm.
Internationally known Lincoln scholar and actor, Dr. Gene Griessman, will appear in costume as the 16th President delivering the presentation, "The Wit & Wisdom of Abe Lincoln." "It will be like having the real Abraham Lincoln in person," said Beryl Grall, the organizer of this event. "President Lincoln never visited Sandy Springs; bringing him here to share his knowledge 150 years later doesn't seem like a moment too soon."
The wit, humor and eloquence of the 16th President are brought to life by Griessman's remarkable performance and uncanny resemblance to Lincoln. His stirring portrayal of Lincoln will take us back to the Gettysburg address and moments before his assassination at Ford's Theatre. Through Lincoln's wisdom and wit, Griessman will share the secrets Lincoln learned for dealing with the challenges we face in our everyday lives including: leadership, communication and personal achievement. He will offer some unforgettable lessons from one of the greatest figures of all time in this once in a lifetime opportunity.
"Entertaining our visitors in a meaningful way is a strong tradition at Northwest," said Beryl Grall. "Sharing Lincoln's special and timely message on leadership in times that demand leadership - who better than Abe to teach us about handling the pressing issues of today," she said.
