Speaking of Faith

I don’t know how many of you are familiar with NPR’s Speaking of Faith, but it’s a wonderful weekly radio program that explores different spiritual traditions and topics. This week’s show is called "The Spirituality of Parenting", and as if that were not exciting enough, I may be on it! I definitely have a short piece (along with several other parents from different traditions) on their web site from Thursday, June 15 through Wednesday, June 21. It was an interesting exercise, trying to sum up my experience with parenting and spirituality in a paragraph. It was also fun recording my words, though I don’t yet know if my clip made the radio broadcast. With baseball playoffs and school ending, I don’t have time to figure out how to listen to a podcast tonight, but I wanted to post this now because I suspect many of you will be interested in the topic regardless of whether or not I'm on the show.

"The Sprituality of Parenting" will air in Philadelphia on Sunday, June 18, at 7:00am on WHYY, 91.0 FM. In other parts of the country, it airs between the 15th and the 21st (2006). Broadcast times and locations can be found on the Web site.

Eileen: I LOVE that show, though I don't always manage to catch it. I will certainly make a point to listen this Sunday morning, and if I can get the podcast, I'll preserve it for you. Way to go!

Cool! I love that show too. Usually I don't remember to turn the radio on first thing in the morning on Sundays, however. I'll try to catch it this week. I hope to hear your clip!

Thanks for the encouragement everyone! I just skimmed the transcript, and my piece is not in the program, but it does look interesting.

Thank you for this post. I listen to NPR all the time but have never heard of Speaking of Faith. Maybe my local station doesn't carry it? I will look into it. Love your blog!
