<v Speaker 1>When I was playing the role of Jesus, and I realize that there's many people that are by themselves and there's homeless and confused and very lost, I believe that just like everybody else in person, Jesus suffered the most, he gives us an example that there is hope and that there is faith that just because there might be times where you do have to suffer, you can actually look at Christ and see yourself as he did, and bring out the spirit, bring out some light, which gives you hope to continue and grow from it. <v Announcer>For many Christians, the suffering of Jesus is a metaphor for daily life. Why do good people suffer? Watch Chicago Matters as we explore questions of faith in April here on 11. <v Non-dialog>[Religious singing].

<v Speaker 2>The way Hinduism is, is it's really part of your life, and when you live in India, it's it's something that you're not formally taught. My son, who's six now knows much more than I ever knew, you know, when I was growing up. And I share the stories of our epics. And when I do that, you know, he naturally shares these stories with his friends. And many times, you know, he's been very, very discouraged and or maybe perhaps embarrassed by who he was because his friends make fun of him. On the other hand, when children have shown interest in what he's saying and or when teachers have asked him about the stories, he feels very validated about his beliefs and practices are. <v Announcer>Religious diversity is a fact of life in Chicago, can we all get along?

Description
Series Description
"Each year WTTW devotes its Chicago Matters Series to a subject of concern to the community. This year, the series presented an in-depth look at religion. Joined by WBEZ Radio and The Chicago Public Library, the series addressed QUESTIONS OF FAITH through documentaries, weekly radio programs and public discussions. "No matter what religion we are ascribed, there are certain life events that often compel us to turn to religion in search of meaning, comfort and community. THE HEART OF RELIGION examines the role religion plays in our personal and spiritual life through three 'rites of passage,' birth, marriage and death. "CHICAGO'S SACRED TREASURES takes viewers on a visual tour through the city and suburbs to illustrate how religious communities express their faith through the arts. Through music, dance, sculpture, calligraphy, painting, stained glass and even needlework the program conveys the idea that in all religions there are those who are inspired to express their devotion through some sore of creative expression. "A special edition of CHICAGO TONIGHT, WTTW's nightly public affairs series, introduces viewers to Chicago's fastest-growing and second-largest religion--Islam. Host John Callaway moderates this discussion about beliefs, practices, and stereotypes with four area Muslims, including a leader of the offshoot Nation of Islam. "The CHICAGO MATTERS MINUTES served as public service announcements as well as promotion for the series. As a community service to our viewers, the CHICAGO MATTERS SERIES utilized various mediums to promote religious understanding and tolerance among the different faiths through dialogue. "RECOMMENDED VIEWING: THE HEART OF RELIGION and CHICAGO's SACRED TREASURES"--1996 Peabody Awards entry form.
