American pluralism : nurturing interfaith dialogue ( visu )
3 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 258 libraries worldwide
In a religious context, America's motto E Pluribus Unum-Out of Many, One-means not a merging of belief systems, but a joining together of such systems into an interfaith community that honors doctrinal differences while promoting mutual understanding through dialogue and collaboration. This program surveys America's increasingly pluralistic spiritual landscape via The Pluralism Project at Harvard University; the Interfaith Center at the Presidio; Inter-Faith Ministries, in Wichita; and the United Religions Initiative, in San Francisco. Participants include Diana Eck, Director of The Pluralism Project; the Reverend Paul Chaffee, Director of the Interfaith Center at the Presidio; the Reverend Sam Muyskens, Executive Director of Inter-Faith Ministries; religious mythologist Karen Armstrong; Rabbi David Rosen; and George Washington University's Seyyed Hossein Nasr
Science and spirituality : convergence of the sublimes ( visu )
3 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 251 libraries worldwide
In order for both science and spirituality to coexist in the world, must an individual necessarily place one above the other? Or, if treated as coequals, must the empirical and the intangible always be kept separate, never to intersect? In bringing together proponents of science and spirituality, this program proposes a third course: to encourage the overlapping of these contrasting worldviews in a revolutionary union of wisdom-and by joining strength to strength, facilitate the salvation of the Earth as humankind stands at the brink of global environmental catastrophe. Participants include B. Alan Wallace, of the Santa Barbara Institute for Consciousness Studies; author and futurist Peter Russell; Jacob Needleman, of San Francisco State University; and Sister Joan Chittister
Evolving with the Bible : controversy, conciliation, and the Bible's place in American culture ( visu )
3 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 247 libraries worldwide
America's history has been repeatedly marked by debate over how the Bible applies or does not apply to social and scientific issues. Even strictly within the realm of religion, conservatives and liberals are divided about the authority and meaning of the Bible. This program examines Bible-related points of polarization and explains how different readings can coexist and even enrich each other. Topics include the place of the Bible in American culture, the Creationism/Darwinism debate, the Judaeo-Christian creation myth in relation to other cultures' creation myths, and the use of biblical parables in the classroom as tools to stimulate students' moral imagination. Participants include the Reverend Peter Gomes, of The Memorial Church of Harvard University; religious mythologist Karen Armstrong; Harvard Divinity School's Harvey Cox; James Forbes Jr., of New York City's Riverside Church; Princeton University's Robert Wuthnow; and Boston University's Stephen Prothero
Spirituality and Religion : Complementary Forces in the Soul's Quest for Enlightenment ( visu )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 244 libraries worldwide
Many people refrain from identifying themselves with any particular religion, yet they express a keen interest in nourishing their own sense of the sacred. What, then, does it mean to be spiritual but not religious? And how might individuals benefit by joining their spirituality to the religion of their choice? This program uses the psychosocial journey from dependence, to independence, to interdependence, to unity to propose answers to these questions. Participants include the Reverend Scotty McLennan, Dean for Religious Life at Stanford University; James Forbes Jr., of New York City's Riverside Church; B. Alan Wallace, of the Santa Barbara Institute for Consciousness Studies; Sister Joan Chittister; retired Episcopal Bishop John Shelby Spong; and Huston Smith, philosopher of world religions
Mysticism and the perennial philosophy : Huston Smith speaks ( visu )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 243 libraries worldwide
Huston Smith has devoted his life to study of the ineffable experience. This program opens windows of understanding into the renowned mystic philosopher's unceasing quest for truth about the ultimate nature of reality as he shares the story of his early decades: growing up in China in a missionary family, preparation for a career in the ministry, the "aha!" moment in college that redirected him to a career in academia instead, and the shift in worldviews from naturalistic theism to mysticism that resulted from reading Aldous Huxley's The Perennial Philosophy. In addition, George Washington University's Seyyed Hossein Nasr expands upon the concept of the perennial philosophy, while author and futurist Peter Russell considers the idea that humans are "transitional creatures" and are rapidly approaching the omega point described by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
A spirituality of co-creation : partnering with god ( visu )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 242 libraries worldwide
The prevailing monotheistic religions have been dominated by a top-down approach based upon a paternalistic model. This model is being called into question by some who assert that human beings must step forward to accept greater responsibility for our actions while becoming more attuned to transpersonal creative energies
A Finger pointing at the moon : transcending religion to achieve unity in the divine ( visu )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 241 libraries worldwide
If religion is viewed as?a finger pointing at the moon,? then preoccupation with that finger?rites, rituals, rules?can actually be an obstacle to spiritual experience. This program considers the idea that religion is a means to sanctity, not an end in itself; the importance, in a time of rising global threat levels, of dissolving strictly sectarian conceptions of God; the profound unanimity of the religious quest; approaches to connecting with one?s own inherent divinity; and the influence of personal and cultural mythology, as defined by Joseph Campbell. Participants include retired Episcopal Bishop John Shelby Spong; James Forbes Jr., of New York City?s Riverside Church; author and futurist Peter Russell; religious mythologist Karen Armstrong; Sister Joan Chittister; Diana Eck, of The Pluralism Project at Harvard University; Harvard Divinity School?s Harvey Cox; Robert Bellah, of U.C. Berkeley; Rabbi David Rosen; Huston Smith, philosopher of world religions; and Buddhist scholar and translator B. Alan Wallace
A Congress of the world's religions : speaking out for peace and unity ( visu )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 240 libraries worldwide
On the fifth anniversary of 9/11, 1,800 delegates gathered at the Congress of World Religions in Montreal to spend a week in ecumenical dialogue. This program captures the wisdom of attendees who, speaking from the podium or offstage, address topics ranging from widespread religious fanaticism, the destabilizing action/reaction spiral of violence, and the misuse of religion for political ends to defusing alienation through acceptance, fighting the radical poverty that polarizes communities, and nurturing understanding through greater awareness of the oneness of humankind. Participants include Congress President Arvind Sharma; Rabbi David Rosen; religious mythologist Karen Armstrong; the University of Montreal's Patrice Brodeur; George Washington University's Seyyed Hossein Nasr; Yifa, recipient of the UN's Outstanding Women in Buddhism Award; Harvard Divinity School's Harvey Cox; Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, founder of the Art of Living Foundation; Deepak Chopra, president of the Alliance for a New Humanity; Nobel Laureate Shirin Ebadi; and Huston Smith, philosopher of world religions
Church and state : Christianity, religious diversity, and secular humanism in America ( visu )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 235 libraries worldwide
The separation of church and state represents one of the most fundamental principles of American democracy. While some contend that the United States needs to return to its roots as a "Christian nation," others point out that the Founding Fathers crafted a system specifically designed to guard against any form of state-sanctioned religion. After reviewing the substance of the debates that took place during the Constitutional conventions, this program examines the evolution of Christianity in the U.S. and reflects upon the growth of religious diversity as well as trends toward secular humanism. Participants include Boston University's Stephen Prothero; Diana Eck, of The Pluralism Project at Harvard University; Robert Bellah, of U.C. Berkeley; retired Episcopal Bishop John Shelby Spong; Princeton University's Robert Wuthnow; and the Reverend Peter Gomes, of The Memorial Church of Harvard University

The Ground of being : approaches to conceptualizing god ( visu )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 176 libraries worldwide
In contemplating a supreme being, some theologians have turned away from a personified depiction to adopt, instead, the broader transcendent term "the ground of Being"--A concept popularized by theologian Paul Tillich. Speaking primarily from the Christian point of view, this program explores the personal and therefore subjective nature of conceptualizing God, the broadening of religious discourse in the area of the more abstract aspects of numinous experience, and the perceived necessity of getting beyond both a fundamentalist reaction to the evolving theological discourse and a secular humanist dismissal of all religion in order to establish a sense of humankind's spiritual place in the 21st-century cosmos. Participants include retired Episcopal Bishop John Shelby Spong; James Forbes Jr., of New York City's Riverside Church; Sister Joan Chittister; religious mythologist Karen Armstrong; and Princeton University's Robert Wuthnow

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 142 libraries worldwide
Myths, misconceptions, and the march of time have obscured the true origins and legal details of Brown v. The Board of Education. This fascinating program connects viewers with the people, places, events, and ideas that shaped the landmark civil rights case. Interviewees include Cheryl Brown Henderson, daughter of lead plaintiff Oliver Brown; Zelma Henderson, who, until her death in 2008, was the only surviving Brown plaintiff; and the children of other plaintiffs, attorneys, and activists. Civil rights leader Roger Wilkins and other scholars provide additional expertise on the roles played by the NAACP and the U.S. Justice Department
