In a programme for people of all faiths and none, Michael talks with those whose life experiences cause them to call on their beliefs, as he seeks to discover what religion does for people - and occasionally to them.
With regular updates from across the world’s faiths and from those that hold them, this is a thought-provoking 30 minutes of radio.
The programme is produced by Sheila O'Callaghan, the commissioning editor of the series is Roger Childs.
