In conjunction with the national series, God In America, KUED presents two follow-up productions. On Monday, October 11 at 10:00 p.m. KUED airs God in Utah, a half-hour report on religious diversity in Utah. The special shares the stories of several unique Utah religious figures and how their faith enables them to contribute to the community. They include Father Omar Ontivernos, a Hispanic Catholic Priest of the Salt Lake Diocese; Noor Ulhasan, a Muslim member of the Salt Lake Interfaith Roundtable; and Alex Boye, popular African-American recording artist and soloist with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, among others. Their insight and personal stories offer greater understanding of their own beliefs and the beliefs that many in the Utah community share in common.
On Wednesday, October 13 at 10:00 p.m. immediately following the conclusion of the national series, KUED airs Utah Voices: God in America, a thoughtful discussion of the PBS series and its relevance to Utahns with host Ken Verdoia and guests from the religious community.
To extend the reach of the series beyond the television screen, KUED has formed strategic partnerships with Utah's faith community to deepen public understanding of Utah's diverse religious community.
