Hometown, Alaska: God in Alaska, Part 2

The Pew Research Center has recently found Alaska to be the least religiously inclined state in the nation. Yet religion has played an enormous roll in the history of the Great Land. This week on Hometown, Alaska join host Teeka Ballas for the second of a two-part series titled, “God in Alaska”. Teeka and her guests, Dr. Kristin Helweg Hanson, professor of religion and philosophy at UAA and Dr. Greg Kimura, president of the Alaska Humanities Forum discuss the initial distribution of different religions around Alaska, and where religion is at to date. Participate in the conversation Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 pm.
