These serve to bring the community together for a night of discussion centered around social, political and legal matters impacting our country.
About No Small Endeavor
No Small Endeavor is hosted by Lipscomb University's Lee Camp, Professor of Theology & Ethics. It began in Nashville as “Tokens Show” in 2008, with quarterly live stage shows exploring theology, social ethics, and human flourishing. The show has hosted an untold number of winners of the nation’s most-respected awards. The Nashville Scene recognized the show as Nashville’s “Best Local Variety Show” which is a “grass-kicking shredfest” that is a “huge success,” with “genre-bending creativity.” The Tennessean calls it “one of a kind,” and a “virtuoso ensemble,” that “is amazing. It’s amazing that [this show] has integrated music, humor and scholarship into something so seamlessly entertaining.
