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.

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.

Tiny Houses for the Homeless - In Eugene, Oregon the city, local churches and volunteers have created a small community for the homeless.

Previously aired Sunday October 5th
Doctors Without Borders - The worldwide movement of 25,000 volunteers in 70 countries who care for the medical needs of the victims of violence, disease and natural disasters. The leaders of MedicinsSans Frontieres, or MSF, also speak out strongly about the unmet needs of the suffering and the urgent responsibilities of those who can help. As Fred de Sam Lazaro reports, one reason Doctors Without Borders has been so successful is that it works so hard to preserve its independence - from governments and all sides in each conflict. Prison Beards - The U.S. Supreme Court begins its new term on Monday and on Tuesday will hear arguments on a case about prison beards. As Tim O'Brien reports, the issue is whether Arkansas prison officials can forbid a prisoner from growing a beard when he claims a half inch beard is a requirement of his Muslim faith. Also whether prohibiting a beard would violate a law, enacted in 2000, guaranteeing the religious liberty of inmates. Vatican Meeting on the Family - On October 5, 2014, Pope Francis will convene a special two-week long meeting of bishops from around the worldto address some of the key challenges the Catholic Church faces in ministering to families.

Host Bob Abernethy and Managing Editor Kim Lawton discuss the meeting with Religion News Service Editor-in-Chief Kevin Eckstrom.

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.
