* Salt Lake City Refugee Resettlement - Earlier this year, at least 30 US governors said they didn't want Syrian refugees to come to their states. Conservative, red-state Utah, however, not only welcomes refugees but also, over the years, has resettled 60,000 of them. Lucky Severson reports from Salt Lake City on why Utah has a history of welcoming strangers and what religious groups are doing to help out. Originally broadcast June 17, 2016.
* Christmas Music Tells the Story - With the Advent season underway, Kim Lawton looks at how central music is to the celebration of Christmas. She talks with singer/songwriter Amy Grant, who says Christmas music allows people to feel the presence of hope, and to Wesley Theological Seminary professor Eileen Guenther, who says that for Christians it is the songs that embody the meaning of Christmas. Originally broadcast Dec.18, 2015.
* Packing Meals for the Hungry - Churches across the country frequently take part in a special project for the charity Stop Hunger Now by sending non-perishable meals to children in poverty-stricken areas of the world. We visited Grace Community Church in Arlington, Virginia, where senior pastor John Slye said of those who were packing the meals, Instead of hearing a sermon, they come here and be the sermon. Originally broadcast Dec. 18, 2015.
