makes you think

Did you happen to catch the CNN special report last week, God's Warriors? We recorded it and have been watching bits and pieces when we can. We are 5 hours into the 6 hour program.

In case you missed it, Christiane Amanpour's report devotes 3 segments - 2 hours each - to understanding the intersection between global politics and 3 religions - Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. She meets with religious leaders, politicians, and every day citizens in various countries around the world to profile how governments have been and are currently affected by religious movements, history, and change. It has been fascinating to watch. Very informative, educational, and thought provoking.

I see that there have been repeats of the original airings of all 3 programs. If you are at all interested, I recommend checking it out.

And, we also watched this...thought provoking wasn't it?

D. was just talking to me about this the other day, I think I'm going to have to figure out when the repeats are on and check it out.

Meg, I loved your comment on my blog this afternoon. I have little doubt that you are one of my most thoughtful readers. Thank you. :)
