Journalist

Cathleen Falsani is a veteran religion journalist and author of nonfiction books including "The God Factor: Inside the Spiritual Lives of Public People," "Sin Boldly: A Field Guide for Grace," and "Disquiet Time: Rants and Reflections on the Good Book by the Skeptical, the Faithful and a Few Scoundrels." She lives in Southern California. 

Cathleen Falsani finds that the movie version of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg misses the very point of the social network: to reconnect with people with whom we already have a relationship.

The Coen brothers’ new movie “A Serious Man” wrestles with spiritual questions without coming up with simple answers, writes religion columnist Cathleen Falsani.

Nurturing Children Through Worship and Prayer Initiative

A new grant is available to support endeavors that help children come to know and love God and grow in faith.

The Nurturing Children Through Worship and Prayer Initiative aims to support programs that help congregations strengthen worship and prayer practices that respect how children experience God and express their faith, include children with disabilities, draw upon the arts, create opportunities for Bible storytelling, and connect worship to the daily lives of children and families.

Proposals are due by 5 p.m. (ET) on May 6, 2024.
