The Sunday Service is something I could definitely get behind! Wish they would have had that type of "church" when I was growing up. Question, love your show, when are you going to do one about the pit bull debate? I'm an owner of 30+ years and am deeply affected by this issue (even being physically threatened by the opposition)!
Morgan travels to Nashville, TN – the buckle of the Bible Belt – to become a guest preacher at an atheist church, a controversial and growing movement in the U.S. Along the way, he visits evangelical mega-churches, Baptist gospel churches, mosques, Mormon gatherings, and more to try and figure out exactly why people need religion in their lives, why it creates so much conflict in this world, and what his own message is for his Sunday sermon.

Loved the show. I was an Episcopal priest for 25 years and struggled to create the kind of community that happened in your piece. Great approach and production. You should explore the definition of faith put forth by my mentor at Emory, Jim Fowler, in his book Stages of Faith. A broad definition of faith, with the positing of stages that people go through in their lives. Could be enlightening. I was surprised that Buddhism was not offered as an identification on your list. Great show. Thank you.

You'd absolutely LOVE my older sister, who believes herself to be an ordained non-denominational Christian minister while still being a practicing Buddhist. Go figure. She's been trying this for over 20 years, and I've long since given up. Not worth it.
