Episode #1803
Previously aired Sunday September 21st
Identifying Missing Immigrants - The Arizona desert is so brutal it can take the lives of some would-be immigrants. As David Tereschuk reports, that can mean their families never know whether their father or husband is alive or dead, and whether they should be given their Church's last rites - unless they are helped by Robin Reineke. She is a compassionate young anthropologist who has made it her work to try to identify the Sonoma Desert's dead and tell the families what she has discovered. One daughter is so grateful she calls Reineke an "angel." Depicting Jesus: The new series "Black Jesus" on the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim channel has generated controversy on many fronts, including for how the show physically portrays Jesus. Throughout history, visual representations of Jesus--in sacred art and pop culture--have prompted both devotion and debate. Kim Lawton talks with San Diego State University History Professor Edward Blum, co-author of the book The Color of Christ, about the potential implications and pitfalls of depicting Jesus. Beit T'Shuvah - The Jewish High Holidays begin at sundown on Wednesday, September 24. Rabbi Mark Borovitz, spiritual leader of residential treatment center Beit T'Shuvah, in Los Angeles, speaks about this period of reflection and prayer. A former addict who spent time in prison, Borovitz sees addiction as a spiritual illness, and the act of repenting, or doing teshuvah, as central to the recovery process.

Episode #1802
Previously aired Sunday September 14th
US Muslims on ISIS - As the nation marks the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and President Obama outlines his strategy to defeat Islamic State militants, ISIS, American Muslim groups this week joined together to reaffirm their condemnation of violent extremism waged in the name of religion. Host Bob Abernethy and Managing Editor Kim Lawton talk with Haris Tarin, Washington Office Director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, about the US response to ISIS and the efforts of American Muslims to respond to potential future threats. Echoes of Ferguson - As the leaders of Ferguson, Missouri start addressing the lessons of their community's violence, the experience of other cities may be helpful. When there was violent unrest in Boston, as Dan Lothian reports, members of the clergy learned to work both with the police and with potentially violent youth. They achieved much-publicized changes, but they also may have claimed success too soon. And now new technology may be requiring new kinds of prevention. Stone Circles - Not just at Stonehenge in England, but all over the world, including the U.S., there may be evidence of pre-historic stone circles many think were used for religious reasons. Lucky Severson visited one such site recently found in Virginia's Shenendoah Valley.

Episode #1752
Previously aired Sunday August 31st
Probation for Profit - In many jurisdictions in the U.S., courts appoint private for-profit probation companies to collect fines and oversee the conduct of individuals accused of violations. As Lucky Severson reports, this can lead to the jailing for months or even years of individuals with relatively small fines that with fees and interest charges balloon to amounts they cannot afford to pay. Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson's Legacy - The spiritual leader of the Chabad Lubavitch Hassidic movement, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, "the Rebbe," died 20 years, but his legacy continues to touch Orthodox and non-Orthodox Jews and non-Jews as well. Although no successor has been named, the Lubavitcher movement has tripled in size since Schneerson's death, with Chabad centers in 49 states and 80 countries. Kim Lawton looks at Schneerson's ongoing impact.

Episode #1751
Previously aired Sunday August 24th
Religious Response to Ferguson - As protests continue in Ferguson, Missouri in the wake of the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager, many in the religious community are calling for a new national conversation about moral issues highlighted in the situation, issues including racial inequality, social justice and the use of police force. Host Bob Abernethy and Managing Editor Kim Lawton discuss the religious response with Alton Pollard III, Dean of Howard University Divinity School and Russell Moore, President of the Ethics & Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention. The Orphan Girls of China -- When Jenny and Richard Bowen of Berkeley, California learned about the millions of neglected, orphaned children in China, most of them girls, they went to work. As Fred de Sam Lazaro reports, they adopted two orphan Chinese girls, and Jenny founded and now heads the "Half the Sky" Foundation, named from the Chinese proverb that says women hold up half the sky. It has trained 12,000 teachers and nannies in 27 Chinese provinces to take better care of the orphans - care that now includes not just warehousing but love. Depicting Jesus - "Black Jesus," a new series on the Cartoon Network has generated protests from conservative Christians. Visually depicting Jesus, whether in sacred art or pop culture, has always been a controversial prospect. Kim Lawton talks with Edward Blum, co-author of the book The Color of Christ, about how portrayals of Jesus can impact spiritual perceptions.

Previously aired Sunday August 3rd
Drugs of Last Resort - In order for a drug to be on the market, it has to be tested through a clinical trial to make sure it is safe and effective. But as Betty Rollin reports, many patients do not qualify for clinical trials. Parents of critically ill children desperately seek experimental drugs through the FDA and pharmaceutical companies and there are ethical issues surrounding who gets the drugs and who doesn't. Jason Fowler, father of 7 year old Jack, says "Is there risk involved? Definitely, but...the other option is watching our son deteriorate and die and we're not going to stand by and do that." The Amanda Lindhout Story - In 2008, Canadian journalist Amanda Lindhout was kidnapped by Somali rebels and spent 15 months in captivity. She says, "The things that happened to me, no human being on the planet should have to go through." Now the author of a best-selling memoir, Lindhout speaks with Bob Faw about her ordeal and the power of forgiveness.
