Aired 2008-09. Presented by the National Council of Churches USA; produced by the United Church of Christ We took a virtual trip around the world and experienced the sights, sounds, challenges and faith-filled hope that emerge everyday. Connecting Threads gave an overview of how threads of sharing and service connect when members of US churches (in this case the United Church of Christ and the Christian Church, Disciples of Christ) work together with global partners. Words and music told their stories of faith in five regions: Africa, Europe and the Middle East, Southern Asia, East Asia and the Pacific, and Latin America and the Caribbean. Mission personnel and global partners from around the world discussed the role the church plays in health and wellness, leadership development, economic support, education, and issues related to access to natural resources.
