A Heart Transformed

Former NBC TV moderator David Gregory opens up about cultivating his inner life while working in what he admits was an 'anti-spiritual environment'. And Michael Coren, well-known for his conservative views, gives a personal account of changing his mind about same-sex marriage.

Working on your inner life isn't always an easy thing do, especially when you're working in what former NBC news anchor David Gregory admits is an 'anti-spiritual environment.'  After 20 years working for the NBC News, most notably as moderator of Meet the Press, David was let go in a very public and very tumultuous way. He had been struggling for quite some time to balance the nature of his job with his dedication to his spirituality. Mary Hynes has a candid, in-depth conversation with David Gregory about his spiritual evolution and his book, How's your Faith?: An Unlikely Spiritual Journey.

A change of heart - then a change of mind.  That's how Michael Coren describes what happened to him not so long ago. As a writer, broadcaster, and former Sun News Network television host, Michael Coren was well-known for his conservative views. But he started to rethink his opposition to same-sex marriage and everything changed.  He's here with a very personal account of the ten days that shook his world.
