This weekend, the radio program This American Life will feature the story of Bishop Carlton Pearson, the televangelist and gospel singer who's come under fire in recent years for embracing universalism.
I enjoy this program, and I'm very interested to see how the reporters handle the story. My hope is that it will be thoughtful and fair to all parties involved, avoiding stereotyping and caricaturing the people on different sides of this issue. We'll see. Tune in (go to TAL's Web page and click "Where to Listen" in the navigation bar on the left to get your local listing info) and we can talk about it here.
Here's some background on the story.
