- The New Pope – As the College of Cardinals continues to vote on who will be the successor to Benedict XVI, Kim Lawton reports from Rome on what different Catholics are expecting from the new Pope—where should he be from and what kind of person would be best suited to lead the Church in this time of crisis?
- None of the Above – Religious Implications – In this concluding segment of a three-part miniseries, Deborah Potter looks at how the rapidly growing numbers of the religiously unaffiliated, especially among younger individuals, could affect churches and the roles of pastors. These so-called “nones” now make up nearly 20 percent of all adult Americans.
