Main Topic: The Political Potential of Religious Pluralism - Evan Stewart 

Music: Nicole Quinn

Community Moment: Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Month - Emily Kremer

Main Topic Summary

For years, researchers and community leaders have worried that these two trends in religion are part of a larger disengagement from democratic life. They worry that secular and spiritual people are pursuing more self-interested — even selfish — goals instead of sticking with traditional centers of community wellbeing.
