Here’s what’s coming up this weekend on State of Belief Radio –
An Imam and his aide are brutally murdered in Queens, New York. We’ll hear about the impact on those who knew Alauddin Akonjee and his assistant Thara Miah – and the entire community – from Kobir Chowdhury, President of the nearby Masjid Al-Aman mosque.
Also, as racial tensions continue to simmer in many parts of the country, an ambitious initiative – launched by President Jimmy Carter – is bringing faith communities together across lines of race. We’ll talk with two pastors who are taking the lead in the New Baptist Covenant: Rev. Trey Lyons from Park Ave Baptist Church and Rev. Michael Wortham from Ebenezer Baptist Church, both in Atlanta, GA.
And Donald and the Dominionists: what exactly was that fringe conservative Christian group that attracted Donald Trump and Marco Rubio to their Rediscovering God in America event in Florida? We’ll ask Fred Clarkson, Senior Fellow at Political Research Associates.
