This past week marked the 13th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks that transformed the landscape of American religious and political life. Too often the memory of this tragedy has been used to fuel fear and hate, but one group of families who lost loved ones that day are working tirelessly to change that. This week Welton is joined by the Rev. Myrna Bethke, a United Methodist pastor, and a member of September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows. The group is buying ads in New York City public transit, challenging islamophobia and spreading a message of hope, not hate.
