God in America
Critics have called it everything from the best documentary this year to an overly Christian view of America. But many have been looking forward to God in America, the six-part series which starts tonight on PBS.
Tonight’s episodes are “A New Adam” and “A New Eden,” and will focus on the origins of America’s religious landscape and the start of religious freedom.
Want to participate? PBS is gathering religious beliefs in its Faithbook. You can create a page about your beliefs. The site offers a list of questions, but it looks like you can answer as many or as few as you’d like. Sound too complicated? The bloggers at Killing the Buddha are asking readers to respond with their religious views in six words or fewer.
If you want to watch, tune in at 9 p.m. and again at 10 p.m. tonight and for the next few days.
ETA: Stafford County resident the Rev. Richard Cizik, president of The New Evangelical Partnership for the Common Good, will be part of the series.
