Letting It Go with Gretta Vosper and Miriam Katin

(Originally aired Oct 6, 2013) Over the years, Gretta Vosper has released her grip on just about everything she had ever learned about God, religion, and her place as a minister. The thing is, she still leads a church.

Over the years, Gretta Vosper has released her grip on just about everything she had ever learned about God, religion, and her place as a minister.  The thing is, she still leads a church. Gretta is the minister at West Hill United Church in Toronto, and the author of the books Amen and With or Without God

Later on the programme, how do you sum up a life in just a few phrases? Pastor LeQuita Hopgood Porter tells us what she's learned about the delicate task of delivering a eulogy. 

Finally: When a young artist named Ilan tried to answer Berlin's call to move there for his career, his mom had a few things to say about it. His mother, Miriam Katin, is Jewish, and her experience of Berlin is one of straight-up fear:  this was the Nazi capital -  horrifying, anti-semitic, dangerous. Mary speaks to Miriam Katin about her graphic novel, Letting It Go.
