Show Notes:

This podcast features music that we heard one Saturday night on the grounds of Umoyo school in Zambia. Young women from the school were singing – in full harmony - uplifting praises to their Lord. Once in their midst, I tried my best to sing and dance along with them. As I stood there it struck me more then ever how irrelevant my criticisms of religion are. These young women find such tremendous strength through their faith and I had to ask myself, Who am I to question that? Instead, I was moved to tears. - Colleen Ayoup, Montreal This recording was made possible by Nicola Luksic, the CBC producer that we were traveling with.
