As the holy weeks of Judaism and Christianity come to an end, we ask: how do you picture God? How do you pray? And how does your belief in God connect to your daily life? Plus: Karen Armstrong, Krista Tippett, Mark Epstein, the Rev. James Martin and others join us for this special family meeting on God, faith, prayer and ritual. 

How Did You Spend Your Holy Week?
