On July 20th, St. Paul's Cathedral hosted the amazing youth tour "Roots Among the Rocks". Here is a shot of the cast & crew with our dean, The Very Rev. Louise Peters.

Upwards of 80 people braved the heat and laughed, cried, identified (or not) with the stories collected and shared by these enthusiastic young people. Most amazing of all, is that approximately 30 days prior to appearing in Kamloops, this group had not met each other, had no material, and no plan. In that short space of time they collected stories from 70 people, wrote a play, found players, directors, and roadies. They played at the General Synod in Halifax in June, then took the production on a road trip across Canada.

It was a production to rival most anything professional, and certainly made this author ponder questions about faith and the church community.
