Meet the "God Squad" - the brains behind "Faith, Food, Friday." They're running with the contrarian notion that maybe we should be talking about the challenging issues that surround faith in America after all? With faith (or lack thereof) used too often as a political tool, the public square could probably stand a change of pace. Whoever you are, whatever your beliefs, bring an open mind, an open heart (and an appetite) for what we hope will be a continuing conversation that defies the biases we seem to have against each other. Every program will include a changing cast of characters to spark the discussion, from leaders in the faith community to scientists, to secularists, to - who knows - maybe you. We hope you'll join us as we explore what happens when we cross each others' thresholds and break a little bread together.
Don't miss the Superbowl Special edition of "Faith, Food, Friday" as we explore the blazing hot topic of Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow's public displays of his faith on the football field, otherwise known as "Tebowing". The former Florida Gator star has found himself the center of a unique national discussion, as speculation on his talent and career - combined with his evangelism - has inspired much editorial ink and many a water cooler conversation. Just what is our fascination with Tim Tebow about and what does it mean about us? Are there larger lessons about the place of faith in our public life?
