Quick. Name the fastest growing religious group in America. If you answered “those who have no affiliation at all,” you’d be right. Known as the “nones,” these folks could have a major impact on religion, culture and politics. So who are they and why do they profess a religious belief but no preference for a denomination? Pastor James Emery White set out to find out and he shares those findings with us.

Think back to the last time you picked up a hula hoop. Probably not since you could write your age with a single digit, right?

Well, it doesn’t have to be that way. Spin Revolution is a Charlotte-based group that promotes serious hooping for all ages. Every week, the small group meets in the back of a photography studio near uptown to practice their craft, and what may seem like a silly plastic toy, gives some hoopers a feeling of spirituality.

When someone gets sick, doctors are, for the most part, concerned with curing illness or disease. But in recent years, there has been increased attention on treating the "whole" person - body, mind and spirit. Sometimes a "cure" isn't likely, but there is a possibility of "healing" when treating the whole person. We'll be joined by a panel of doctors, a hospice worker and a person of faith to talk about healing versus curing and the importance of each, when Charlotte Talks.
