Tapestry brings you something unusual. The show plays excerpts from a live performance by Canadian actor Kenneth Welsh. He read the full Book of Mark from start to finish without taking a break at Beaches Presbyterian Church in Toronto.

It's an interesting undertaking for Welsh, who is highly accomplished.  He's got more than 100 stage productions, 35 movies, 70 television shows and seven seasons at the Stratford Festival under his belt. He is probably best known for his portrayal of Windom Earle on the hit TV show Twin Peaks. He is also recipient of the 2004 Order of Canada for Arts and Stage.

A Note About Mary

We are deeply saddened at the death of Mary's husband, Randy Starkman. He reported on amateur sport for The Toronto Star, and his death is being mourned by athletes, fellow journalists, colleagues and friends from around the world.

Randy, 51, died Monday, April 16, in the intensive care unit of St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto. He had been sick for little over a week with streptococcal pneumonia. Thank you to everyone who has sent condolences and love for Mary and her daughter, Ella. We are also grateful to Tom Allen for filling in for Mary this week.
