Previously aired Sunday November 23rd
Pope Francis to Visit Turkey - On November 28-30, Pope Francis will visit predominantly Muslim Turkey, once the center of ancient Christianity. The Western and Eastern churches split in 1054 and have remained separate ever since. Pope Francis will meet with Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, spiritual leader of the world's 300 million Eastern Orthodox Christians. In a special report from Turkey, Kim Lawton looks at local hopes for how the visit will affect Orthodox-Christian dialogue and interfaith relations. Westerners Who Join Radical Islam - One estimate says 15,000 Westerners - men and women, from many countries - have enlisted in ISIS and other branches of violent, radical Islam this year. Correspondent Dan Lothian talks with experts and a former recruit about the promises, lack of knowledge, social media and other reasons some young Europeans and Americans have gone to join radical Islam. Our Lady of Guadalupe Basilica - It's the most popular Catholic pilgrimage destination in the world. December 12th is the feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the patron saint of Mexico, venerated by millions of believers after her mystical appearance to a Mexican nobleman in the 1500s. Fred de Sam Lazaro tells the story of the Saint's importance to Mexico through the centuries and today, as 20 million people visit her shrine each year.

Episode #1811
Previously aired Sunday November 16th
New Muslim Initiatives Against Extremism - As ISIS, al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups ramp up their recruiting efforts in the West, many Islamic organizations in the US are launching new initiatives aimed at preventing radicalization. They say while the number of Americans Muslims seeking to commit acts of terror is small, the issue must be addressed. Kim Lawton looks at some of the new efforts, as well as some of the controversy that surrounds them. Louisiana Southern Baptists Save a Nova Scotia Church - In rural Nova Scotia a dwindling Anglican congregation had to sell its 200 year old building. In deep South Louisiana, a thriving Southern Baptist congregation needed a sanctuary. So, as David Tereshchuk reports, the Baptists discovered and bought the Nova Scotia Anglican building, took it apart and trucked it 2000 miles to Cajun country, where they are methodically putting it back together, piece by numbered piece -- a new kind of Acadian immigration.

Millennials Church - Saul Gonzalez reports on Mosaic Church in Hollywood, California, a Christian house of worship that focuses on ministering to the millennial generation, young men and women born in the '80's and '90's, many of whom grew up with no strong religious beliefs but who are searching for more meaning in their lives. Profile John Unger - Pastoring three churches and helping run his state's Senate - all at once. In Harper's Ferry, West Virginia, John Unger is the pastor simultaneously of three churches of three different denominations. He thinks he is the first minister in the country to do this across religious traditions. Meanwhile, Unger also has been the majority leader of the West Virginia Senate. He tells Bob Abernethy he does not bring politics into his ministry but that he certainly does bring his faith into politics. He adds that a pastoral approach to legislating is just what the Congress in Washington ought to have.
