This weekend on State of Belief, we revisit Reverend Gaddy’s 2006 interview with Walter Cronkite. Plus, a look at a collection of unique memoirs about religion – from a Bible camp saboteur to a teenage messiah in Brooklyn. And, a Jewish history museum gives you the chance to play curator for an upcoming exhibit.
To honor Walter Cronkite, State of Belief revisits a conversation between Welton and Mr. Cronkite, Honorary Chairman of Interfaith Alliance. This interview aired on the debut episode of State of Belief in January 2006.
And, Michael Rosenzweig, President and CEO of the National Museum of American Jewish History, joins Welton to talk about the forthcoming exhibit “Only in America,” a permanent display dedicated to influential Jewish Americans. Vote for the men and women you think should be included.
Plus, author Peter Manseau shares stories from Believer Beware: First-Person Dispatches from the Margins of Faith, a collection of memoirs he co-edited with Jeff Sharlet. The stories originally appeared on their website Killing the Buddha. Peter Manseau’s other books include Rag and Bone: A Journey Among the World’s Holy Dead and Songs for the Butcher’s Daughter.
Religion and radio done differently – this weekend on State of Belief.
