This screening of TRACES OF THE TRADE: A STORY FROM THE DEEP NORTH is co-sponsored by Christ Church Greenwich. There will be a post-film Q&A with the Reverend Marek Zabriskie and Racial Justice Resource Coordinator Kelli R. Gibson.


A powerful speaker and respected spiritual leader, Marek is the Rector of Christ Church Greenwich. He previously served as Rector of St. Thomas Church in Fort Washington, PA, during which time he greatly expanded that parish, grew its membership and ministries, and developed one of the strongest spiritual formation ministries for children, youth, and adults in the region. Originally from Detroit, MI, Marek studied philosophy at Emory University and trained for the priesthood at Yale and Berkeley Divinity Schools. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1990. Marek has published and edited several books, including The Bible Challenge, a popular study guide, with well over a million users worldwide, that helps people read the entire Bible in a year. He is also a member of the Compass Rose Society, which assists the Archbishop of Canterbury, and has been invited to preach throughout the United States and overseas.
