Just listened to this on Radio 4 - it was both profound and charming. I would recommend it.

I will listen to it. My mother had a "child-like faith" which stood her in good stead - and was impressive to behold - when she faced terminal illness.

The programme is not in fact about a childlike faith; but consists of a number of adults of different faiths (RC, Bahai, Mormon, Muslim etc.) talking about what it was like growing up in that faith and how they came to reject/pursue this as they became adults.

Thanks for the recommendation Mishap. I like to listen on radio iplayer on my iPad when I go to bed (headphones on so no disturbing dh! He does similar but at 5.30 am!!!), so will try this tonight. Its a good thing to learn a bit more about other faiths I think.

In hope you enjoy it - the description by a Jewish girl of the first time she had a bacon butty is glorious - pure poetry!
