Episode #1821
Previously aired Sunday January 25th
State of the Union Religious Reaction - After President Obama outlined his vision for the nation in this week's State of the Union address, Host Bob Abernethy talks with Managing Editor Kim Lawton and Religion News Service Editor-in-Chief Kevin Eckstrom about what people of faith think of the president's proposals. Halki Seminary - One of the longest-standing priorities on the US international religious freedom agenda is the reopening of the Theological School Halki in Turkey. Once the world's leading Eastern Orthodox seminary, Halki was shut down by the Turkish government in 1971. Managing Editor Kim Lawton looks at the ongoing international campaign to see it reopened. Singer/Songwriter and Spiritual Seeker Bruce Cockburn - At 69, the Canadian musician has been described as a combination of Bob Dylan and Gandhi. Over his 50-year career he has produced 31 albums and received numerous awards.

Previously aired Sunday January 18th
Ferguson, Missouri Churches Trying to Restore Community - On the eve of Martin Luther King Day, church leaders in Ferguson, black and white, are trying to help their divided community heal. They tell correspondent Judy Valente they need to listen to each other if protests are ever to be turned into change. India's Artificial Limb Enterprise - In Jaipur, India, poor disabled people who need artificial limbs - up to 25,000 per year - are getting them free of charge. Fred de Sam Lazaro reports that new arms and legs made of a simple construction material are providing for their recipients not only mobility but dignity - critically important in a society in which disability is seen as a sign of bad Karma in a previous life. Muslims and the Paris Attacks - Last week's wave of attacks in Paris has prompted new debates about Islam and extremism. Host Bob Abernethy and Managing Editor Kim Lawton talk with Haris Tarin of the Muslim Public Affairs Council about how the West should respond, how to counter an anti-Muslim backlash, and how US Muslims are trying to keep extremism from taking hold here.

Episode #1819
Previously aired Sunday January 11th
Social Media Ethics - Should social media intentionally make users happy or sad? Last year, when Facebook and others conducted experiments to see if they could affect users' emotions, there was an outcry from people charging that such manipulation was unethical. Lucky Severson reports on the controversy, which extended to attempts to affect choices about voting and dating. Has online technology developed faster than the ethics of how to use it? Raising Kids in Two Faiths - In recent years some interfaith families have decided to raise their children in two faiths. Betty Rollin profiles the Interfaith Community in New York and asks kids about being raised both Jewish and Christian, and whether they will choose one religion later on. Orthodox Epiphany - Some Christian traditions celebrated Christmas this past week. On January 6th and the following Sunday, many other Christians celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany, which marks the revelation of Jesus. For Western churches, the holiday tends to focus on the visit of the Magi to the baby Jesus. But in Eastern Orthodox Churches, Epiphany or Theophany, focuses on Jesus' baptism. Kim Lawton looks at Orthodox celebrations.

Nearly 1.6 million refugees have fled to Turkey. Managing editor Kim Lawton traveled to Istanbul and to Kilis, on the border between Turkey and Syria, for our special report about the challenges facing the refugees and how people of faith are trying to help them. Picturing Mary - A new exhibitat the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC, examines images of Mary by Renaissance and Baroque artists-some exhibited for the first time in the United States. Marian scholar Monsignor Timothy Verdon, director of the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo and Canon of the Florence Cathedral, describes the spiritual and theological significance of some of the works. Handel's Messiah Sing-Along - Composed in 1741, the oratorio is one of the most revered and frequently performed pieces of Christmas music, both for professional musicians and congregations. We visited Northern Virginia's Fairlington United Methodist Church where the community joins the choir each Advent for a Messiah Sing-Along. One of the participants, Kenneth Chadwick, spoke with us about the importance of the Messiah in his Advent observance.
