July 24-27, 31 & Aug 3
Reverend Seer, the fiery pastor at Canaan Baptist Church has spent the better part of his life grappling with the increasing violence that surrounds his church in the South Side of Chicago, 1996. He has already lost his savings, half the congregation has left, and his wife is threatening to leave with or without him. Is Reverend Seer’s unwillingness to leave the small storefront church stubbornness or an act of bravery? His courage is put the greatest test when a gunman enters the church during a funeral looking to take away Pastor Seer’s greatest “possession” – his prodigal son.
