Are You Ready for Save Me?

We’ve Got Sex. We’ve Got Politics. Where’s Religion?

Our culture is swimming in talk about sex and politics. Tabloids plaster news of sex scandals and celebrity hook ups. Cable TV has conveniently separated us into red and blue political groups. What’s fascinating is that neither sex nor politics hold as much sway in people’s day-to-day lives as religion and spirituality. With 92% of the world population claiming some kind of religious affilliation you’d think we’d hear more about this topic. But we don’t.

 Get Ready For Religious Reality TV

The fact that straight-talking faith-based programming is missing altogether on prime time tv ought to puzzle us. For years, popular entertainers like Oprah have shaped the spiritual imaginations of millions of people. (Conservative) grandmothers from Kansas call Ellen de Generes (an openly gay woman) and ask for advice with their kids? Politicians race to religious organizations for support during each election period? No one seems to be openly discussing these paradigm shifts. That is, not until now!

Jim Henderson Presents thinks that spirituality and religion should be thoughtfully and playfully explored just like race, money, politics and sex. But someone needs to provoke and guide this public conversation. It is not currently taking place in any venue or vehicle that is taken seriously by a broader audience.

Let’s change this.

Let’s introduce Religious Reality TV.

Let’s start with Save Me! 

Watch our video below to learn more about Save Me! or simply begin the application process.

  2. When/where will the show take place? I’d love to apply, but I would have trouble traveling out of state at certain times of the year, and I don’t want to apply if I wouldn’t be able to participate.

  3. Ashtara – there is no shoe scheduled yet – this is a pre production effort to provide examples of people who would be interested if there is a show

    Chris – How good to hear from you – email me at jim@offthemap. Id like to find out more about what you are up to these days

  4. There’s a reason people aren’t talking about it. The 8 percent of people who don’t claim to have a belief have seen to it that the other 98 percent of us wh do cannot talk about it in public, the work place, schools and anywhere within earshot of them. Be sure that you’ll face strong opposition trying to air a show about it unless it openly mocks religion. Pity.

  5. I’d like to first say, that I’ve submitted an application for this, and I REALLY would appreciate being considered(if you still are accepting applications). Because…well…in my opinion, this is the most important subject in the world to be discussing.

    Also, on a different note, Linda can’t do math. 8% plus 98% = 106% of people silly billy.

  7. Jim, from an old PDF file (Ordinary Attempts) I ran across, I also discovered the end of Off the Map, and the beginning of this. I like what you plan to do. In regard to religious reality, you might pick up my book, “The Gift of Silence” (Amazon, Barnes & Noble), and see if the short stories would make good background for ideas. It’s based on my hospital chaplain work, and what I learn from people in the most trying times of life. Anyway, I wish you the best.

  8. This is the right site for anyone who would like to understand this topic.
    You understand so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I
    actually will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a fresh spin on a subject that has been written about for years.

    Great stuff, just wonderful!
