I am only a sometime listener -- and was only half listening to today's show (9/12/10) -- when I realized you were reviewing past shows and speaking in past tenses. For a few moments I thought you were ending the program and I became upset. This reaction surprised me because I am not a religious person nor a "person of faith" in the common meaning of those words. Upon reflection, I realized that I appreciate the program because it is the one place where I can participate in a conversation about faith without the dogmatic self-righteousness of so many people who identify as "religious." Asking questions about faith, instead of preaching, works for me because it is so human.
