What's the standard of political citizenship for people of faith who take seriously the Scripture that they are "citizens of God's household"? We'll explore that question with Jerry Nelson, veteran pastor of Southern Gables Church in Lakewood, who was one of our guest chaplains at the state Senate during my time there.

Thanksgiving season in Backbone Colorado USA continues as we'll also welcome Rocky Mountain News religion editor Jean Torkelson and publisher Tim Ewing, for a discussion of why the "holiday" season in this country seems less holy each year.

Ewing's Rare Jewel Magazine has some informative Thanksgiving features you shouldn't miss.

And to keep you ahead of the headlines, former Denverite Cliff May will also check in with the latest on Iraq, Israel, and France from his vantage point at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

Hear it all on 710 KNUS in Denver or online at, 5-8pm November 27. Get in the conversation by calling 303 696 1971, or email us at
