KQED World: Sun, Feb 24, 2013 -- 8:00 AM

AMERICA'S EVANGELICAL MECCA - Colorado Springs has been dubbed this nation's Christian Mecca because of the profusion of Evangelical Christian groups headquartered there - including Focus on the Family, a large, conservative and politically active ministry. But as Saul Gonzalez reports, Focus on the Family, for one, is re-thinking how deeply it should be involved in politics, and whether it needs to start building bridges to those with whom it disagrees.
NYC RELIGIONS - New York has been called the most secular city in America, but a project called "A Journey Through NYC Religions" is attempting to disprove that. The group is documenting every religious site in the five boroughs, street by street, alleyway by alleyway. Since 2010, they've visited nearly 6500 houses of worship. Kim Lawton talks with project founder Tony Carnes and follows along on their journey.

KQED World: Sun, Feb 10, 2013 -- 8:00 AM

MAINSTREAM CHRISTIAN MUSIC - On Sunday February 10, Grammy Awards will be given to the top performers in music, including the genres of Gospel and Contemporary Christian music. Kim Lawton looks at the growth in Christian music, with strong sales and new success in the mainstream charts and interviews leading Christian recording artists - and 2013 Grammy nominees - TobyMac and rapper Lecrae.
THE LIFE OF DOROTHY DAY - A radical and an anarchist who was arrested often for her protests against war and injustice, Dorothy Day founded the Catholic Worker movement 80 years ago, in 1933. Its soup kitchens continue to operate around the world. Deborah Potter examines the life of this woman who would convert to become a devout Catholic and a champion of the poor, and who now has the unanimous support of the US bishops for canonization, having been called by Cardinal Dolan of New York "a saint for our times."

KQED World: Sun, Feb 3, 2013 -- 8:00 AM

THE ROSA PARKS PAPERS - Rosa Parks' act of civil disobedience in 1955 sparked the Montgomery, Alabama bus boycott that ignited the civil rights movement and brought a new young pastor, Martin Luther King Jr. to national prominence. Parks would have been 100 years old on February 4th. She died in 2005 but her personal papers and correspondence are still not publicly available because of a dispute among her heirs, a court's ruling that the papers must be kept together and an auctioneer's inability to find a buyer. David Tereshchuk reports.
GRAND RAPIDS INTERFAITH YEAR - Over the past year the city of Grand Rapids, Michigan, known for its religious conservatism, held over 250 interfaith events aimed at deepening interfaith understanding. Judy Valente reports on the achievements of the unique year-long city-wide effort to build interpersonal relationships between people of different faiths.
