Church and state
Second in a ten-part series which addresses the emergence of worldviews that integrate scientific inquiry and spiritual insights while exploring the convergence of a wide range of religious traditions.This episode looks at the separation of church and state, which 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. 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.

Will we have the wisdom to survive? The film features thought leaders and activists in the realms of science, economics and spirituality discussing how we can evolve and take action in the face of climate disruption. They urge us to open ourselves to the beauty that surrounds us and get to work on ensuring it thrives.
