This weekend on State of Belief, when is the Christian cross not a Christian symbol? This Easter weekend, host Welton Gaddy examines efforts by religious conservatives to redefine the cross as a secular symbol.  Plus, a group of Jews, Muslims and Christians  in Nebraska is breaking new ground – literally – in the area of interfaith relations.  Find out how.

 


Welton speaks with Nancy Kirk, executive director of the TriFaith Initiative, about her group’s efforts to build a joint campus that will house a Reform synagogue, a mosque and an Episcopalian church in Omaha, Nebraska.  Visit their website to learn more.

Plus, Welton shares his own thoughts on the themes of sacrifice and freedom for all people this Passover and Easter season.

And, Holly Hollman, general council for the Baptist Joint Committee on Religious Liberty, joins Welton to discuss a series of recent lawsuits that address the different meanings of the Christian cross on public land.

We’ve got listeners’ comments too when Welton shares some of the recent mail we have received here at State of Belief.  Don’t forget to share your own thoughts, too.  Write to  us!
