I speak with journalist Linda K. Wertheimer, the author of Faith Ed: Teaching About Religion In an Age of Intolerance. In her book, she has a chapter titled “The Church Lady,” where she recounts her experience of her family moving from western New York to a town in Ohio.

This month, we're hearing a series of interviews about religious faith and cultural identity in West Virginia. John Simmons grew up on the West Side of Charleston and is now a pastor in a church there.  But a few years ago he heard a calling that would take him and his family to northern Thailand for Christian missionary work for four years.  In this interview, John's wife Lisa asks him to reflect on the family's time there and what it meant to him and his faith.
