In The Moment ... March 23, 2020 Show 779 Hour 1

If you're a frequent listener of In the Moment, you know we've been having conversations about the "Future of Faith" in South Dakota. Since the time we began the project, COVID-19 has challenged how South Dakotans worship, changed the role of faith leaders, and kept congregants from congregating. 

Could some of the new adoptions last long into the future of faith? 

Donald DeGrood is the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sioux Falls.

In The Moment ... January 30, 2020 Show 744 Hour 2 We live in an age where science has answered so many big questions that many struggle to reconcile faith and science. Our next guest says, "When we study science, it is not an absolute truth - just within the parameters of that experiment. When people make science the absolute ideal for all truth, they miss out on the broader idea of what it means to have something be true. Faith is rooted in the internal core of who we are as human beings.
