Common Hour: Channel of Peace Interfaith Program

Channel of Peace author, Kevin Tuerff, shares his story about being stranded with others on his plane in Gander, Newfoundland on September 11, 2001 when his plane was grounded. The remarkable encounters with others in Gander along with people of varying faith backgrounds inspired him greatly.

Kevin Tuerff's story was the basis for the hit Broadway musical, Come From Away, and it was featured on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered which aired on September 8, 2016. His story was also featured in a Washington Post article by Colby Itzkowitz in 2016.
