This week Tapestry asks how important is it for worship to be 'fun'. We meet Reverend Dorian Baxter
, who also goes by the stage name "Elvis Priestly". The former Anglican priest set up his own church called "Christ the King Graceland Independent Anglican Church of Canada
We also hear from Jeffrey MacDonald
, who is an ordained minister and the author of Thieves in the Temple: The Christian Church and the Selling of the American Soul
. He's concerned that churches too readily cater to the desires of the modern parishioner.
Afterwards we travel to Maple Creek, Saskatchewan, where the cowboy church
is in full swing.
And in the Soundtrack for the Soul series produced by Kirsten Murphy
in Yellowknife, lauded Canadian photographer Larry Towell
brings us his song.
