Many Stories, One Voice
In 2018, an idea was formed to create a platform for crucial conversation that focused on the adversities that young people in the community of Great Falls, Montana struggle with.
That idea eventually led to the project Converge: E Pluribus Unum, a creative storytelling experience utilizing live stage performances based on over 50 hours of actual interviews with students, parents, teachers, school administrators, law enforcement personnel, and mental health counselors.
The goal of the project was to impact social change, raise community awareness, and inspire collective action.
The cast of Converge: E Pluribus Unum was comprised of students from C.M. Russell High School, Great Falls High School, and the Paris Gibson Education Center; three live performances were staged in February, 2019 and an encore performance was held in April, 2019. Over 1,400 Great Falls community members attended these performances.
The film Many Stories, One Voice documents the creative process of the project, and was directed by our priest, the Reverend Tim Ljunggren.

Co-sponsoring with the Parish Gibson Square Museum of Art, the Church of the Incarnation hosted a dinner/painting night entitled "Love is in the Air." Participants enjoyed an Italian dinner, and then immersed themselves in creating their own art. The third in a series of events dedicated to developing an appreciation for art through hands-on experiences, the cooperation between the Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art and the Church of the Incarnation continues to expand and explore the importance of art in our society.
