NOVEMBER 29-30, 2008

This weekend on State of Belief, join host Welton Gaddy as we give thanks…thanks for the work of people who dedicate their lives to advancing the ideals of diversity and tolerance. Hear my conversations with a Muslim feminist whom I have described as a contemporary saint and a rabbi who will tell us how to find the sacred amid the messiness of life.

 

 

In honor of Thanksgiving, we revisit a conversation with Reverend Sarah Clarke, pastor of First Parish Church, a Unitarian Universalist congregation which is also the first Pilgrim congregation.

 

Plus, a look back at the LEADD summer camp, one of the many Interfaith Alliance programs for which we are thankful.

 

And, Welton revisits past conversations with Rabbi Irwin Kula, author of Yearnings: Embracing the Sacred Messiness of Life, and Asra Nomani, author of Standing Alone in Mecca: An American Woman’s Struggle for the Soul of Islam. Rabbi Kula and Asra Nomani were both recipients of this year’s Walter Cronkite Faith & Freedom Award given by Interfaith Alliance.

 

Don’t miss Welton’s own thoughts on what he is particularly thankful for this year.
