    Quietest Place On Earth The Hawaiian Islands are the most remote major island group on earth. On the second-largest island of Maui, the Haleakala volcano rises 10, 000 feet - nearly two miles - into the sky. And the massive crater located at its summit carries the unique distinction of "The Quietest Place on Earth." For some, the exquisite stillness of this stark volcanic landscape can mimic a religious experience, while for others, it simply inspires a deeper awareness of humans' place in nature. This program explores Maui's geological and spiritual birthplace. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Second Opinion [#1407] Hospital Delirium While caring for her mother, Donna Smith learned for the first time about Hospital Delirium.

Hospital Delirium is a grossly misunderstood issue in ICUs in our country, but Donna and the medical experts delve into the topic in a way that will help countless people who are unaware of the issue. Although the story has a sad ending, the information shared will help others face these challenges. duration 26:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Adventists This program explores the realities, and some of the ironies, of one of the few American-born religions: Seventh-day Adventism. Historical reenactments offer a glimpse into the church's beginnings, including its defining moment: the mid-19th century event known as the Great Disappointment. Several decades later, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg built a breakfast food empire and pioneered a new kind of healthcare facility based on Adventist principles of a healthy lifestyle: a plant-based diet; regular exercise; the avoidance of alcohol, tobacco or illegal drugs, and a holistic focus on education and community life. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    An American Mosque This documentary follows a group of Muslim farmers in Yuba City, California, as they struggle to build their local mosque only to see it destroyed by arson. In the wake of the fire, questions abound: Who committed the crime? Is the arson an act of hate? How will the community respond and rebuild?
    Despite their loss, the film's central characters are unrelenting in their conviction that all Americans are entitled to a religious sanctuary and the right to practice their faith openly. Witness how they regroup and peacefully respond to this devastating crime, while members of other faiths show their support. As mosque projects come under attack and hate-crimes against Muslims rise across the country, this program offers a cautionary tale showing the human consequence of this intolerance.

  • 12:30 pm
    Crisis of Faith Narrated by Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Amy Grant, this program examines how slavery and biblical interpretations on its morality divided religious denominations and ultimately, the nation, in the Civil War era. Most Southerners deemed slavery integral to their way of life, and the Bible seemingly reinforced this belief. Christian figures in both the Old Testament and the New Testament never object to, nor do they condemn, the practice. Abolitionists, meanwhile, viewed slavery as an evil inconsistent with values of Christianity. In interviews, prominent religious scholars and historians discuss the evolution of arguments over slavery - from the rhetoric of freedom and equality stoked by the American Revolution; to the divisions of the Methodist, Baptist and Presbyterian churches into northern and southern factions; to the dividing of the nation and the eruption of Civil War. duration 28:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

  • 5:00 pm
    Buddha Two and a half millennia ago, a new religion was born in northern India, generated from the ideas of a single man, the Buddha. He was a mysterious Indian sage who famously gained enlightenment while he sat under a big, shapely fig tree. The Buddha never claimed to be God or his emissary on earth. He said only that he was a human being who, in a world of unavoidable pain and suffering, had found a kind of serenity that others could find too. Award-winning filmmaker David Grubin tells the story of the Buddha's life, a journey especially relevant to our own bewildering times of violent change and spiritual confusion. This documentary draws upon the work of some of the world's greatest artists and sculptors, who across two millennia have depicted the Buddha's life in art rich in beauty and complexity. His biography is also tracked geographically across the sweeping landscapes of northern India. The testimony of contemporary Buddhists -- including Pulitzer prize-winning poet W.S. Merwin and His Holiness the Dalai Lama -- provides insight into the ancient narrative. To tell his story is to understand his teaching. And to understand his teaching is to gain new insight into what it is to be human. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
