In this two-hour special we take a look at what some polls show is a growing trend of religious disaffiliation in America. At noon, we’ll hear from Geoffrey Layman, a professor at the University of Notre Dame who studies religion and politics and Daniel Cox, research director at the Public Religion Research Institute in Washington, about why fewer Americans report that they are attending church these days. 


Then at one, M. Dion Thompson, a former Baltimore Sun reporter now rector at the Church of the Holy Covenant in Baltimore, talks about the task of building a congregation today. And we hear personal stories about keeping the faith -- or not.
