Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly

Episode #1248

Interfaith Wedding - Interfaith marriage has become commonplace in this country. But, for a long time, couples chose to celebrate their weddings in one of their faith traditions - or none at all. Today, interfaith couples are often embracing both their religions. Betty Rollin provides a behind-the-scenes look at how the dual marriage celebrations of a Hindu-Sikh couple help honor each of their families' different religious traditions.

Interracial Churches - The election of Barack Obama caused many Americans to be proud of the country's movement toward racial integration, and also to re-examine the difficulties involved in that, not least in churches where 11 o'clock on Sunday morning is still the most segregated hour of the week. Lucky Severson explores efforts by churches - and the challenges they face - to establish more racially integrated congregations. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
