VARIOUS SHOTS in the Ebenezer Tabernacle Apostolic Church in Verdun. On a platform, black pastor Hopeton Morris holds a microphone and preaches, gesticulating to his voice’s syncopated rhythms. He continues as he walks down toward the pews to be closer to the congregation of men, women, and children. Some nod their heads in approval of his words; others applaud. The pastor is standing in front of a lectern on the platform, preaching with animation, periodically repeating the same words along with two women standing behind him. The congregation is standing and reacting to his words in various ways. The pastor moves the lectern and walks down from the platform, while a man and a woman precede him holding up a white cloth. The pastor is standing before a lectern on the platform.
