Surge of Migrant Children -As thousands of children fleeing the violence and poverty of Central America continue to flood into the Southwest, churches are helping the government take care of them. Saul Gonzalez reports on the continuing crisis and how it is triggering angry debates and widespread uncertainty about the future for the detained children and of long term immigration reform. Mental Health in India - For the millions of people in India suffering from mental health disorders there are only a few thousand psychotherapists. That gap, alongside popular devotion to faith healing and witchcraft, has kept many afflicted Indians from getting any effective care. But Fred de Sam Lazaro reports that in some places, alongside traditional treatment -- modern medical care is being gradually being accepted.

Episode #1744
Previously aired Sunday July 6th
Religious Reaction to Hobby Lobby Decision - Religious groups are deeply divided over the Supreme Court's controversial ruling Monday in the so-called Hobby Lobby case. In a 5-4 decision, the justices said despite a requirement in the Affordable Care Act, some for-profit corporations cannot be forced to provide contraception coverage which their owners say violates their religious beliefs. Managing Editor Kim Lawton reports on the various reactions within the faith community. Also, host Bob Abernethy talks with Lawton and Religion News Service editor-in-chief Kevin Eckstrom about wider implications of the decision. Donor's Gift of Life - Two years ago on July 4th, facing a virtual death sentence from cancer, former veteran CBS news correspondent Phil Jones underwent a stem cell transplant with cells provided by an anonymous donor. As Bob Faw reports, the procedure was effective and a year after the transplant Jones for the first time met the donor, Eric Priest, a navy lieutenant and ordained Baptist pastor who said donating the stem cells was just part of his ministry. Belief & Practice--Martyrdom of the Bab - On July 9th, Baha'is observe the Martyrdom of the Bab, which marks the 1850 execution in Persia of one of the founders of their faith. It is one of nine holy days during which Baha'is suspend work and school. We visited a commemoration program at the Northern Virginia Baha'i Center, guided by Baha'i Educator Hillary Chapman.

Previously aired Sunday June 29th
Behavioral Ethics - Researchers in economics and psychology are studying why some people in business behave dishonestly. Lucky Severson says some employees in big corporations say they think it's all right to behave unethically because "everyone else is doing it," or that they will be punished if they report wrongdoing. But researchers say in the long run companies will pay for unethical behavior. Wild Goose Festival - This is the weekend of the annual Wild Goose Festival in rural North Carolina, where thousands of mostly liberal Christians gather for story-telling, performances and worship. As Kim Lawton reports, the emphasis is on everyday practices of love, simplicity and sacrifice, not just doctrine. The Hobby Lobby Case - Tim O'Brien examines the arguments the Supreme Court has considered over whether, under the Affordable Care Act, the government should be able to require employers to provide certain kinds of contraception coverage for their employees, even if the employers object to such treatments on religious grounds.

Previously aired Sunday June 22nd
Human Trafficking - From Vietnam's border with China, Fred de Sam Lazaro reports on the continuing tragedy of human trafficking - poor country girls tricked into going to China where they have a choice between marriage and a brothel. Some of the girls escape, and get back to their villages, often only to be rejected by their own families. But there are people and organizations trying to help - finding scholarships so at least some of the girls who return can go back to school and learn job skills. Threatened Churches - What happens to beautiful old church buildings when their congregations move away and there's not enough money for basic maintenance or to prevent demolition? Saul Gonzales reports from Philadelphia on the organization "Partners for Sacred Spaces," which is helping central city churches find tenants whose rent can keep the historic buildings from being torn down, even if the new uses are not traditionally religious.

Previously aired Sunday June 15th
Religious Outreach to Veterans - Amid accusations of bureaucratic mismanagement, the Department of Veterans Affairs' new acting secretary, Sloan Gibson, has pledged to move all veterans off waiting lists and into medical care as quickly as possible. He said the VA will work with public and private organizations to get vets the services they need. Last year, the VA launched a new initiative to partner with faith-based groups to reach out to vets. Kim Lawton reports that more and more religious congregations are providing veterans with practical help, and also with emotional help to address what many call the "moral injuries" sustained during war. Dhammakaya Temple - Lucky Severson reports that the enormous and controversial Dhammakaya Temple in Thailand is part of a growing Buddhist movement that teaches spiritual power in mass meditation and worldly success through donations to the movement. Critics label it an un-Buddhist "prosperity gospel," but the Dhammakaya movement has centers now in 30 countries. Belief and Practice, Upanayanam - A look at the traditional Upanayanam "coming of age" ceremony where Hindu boys between the ages of 8 and 16 receive a sacred thread which symbolizes the start of their formal spiritual education. Dr. Siva Subramanian, founder of the Sri Siva Vishnu Temple in suburban Washington D.C., describes the elaborate rituals and chants in the two-day ceremony.
