NEW YORK, Dec. 27, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- It has been a year of dramatic stories in America, and faith and religion played a role in virtually every big headline. Odyssey Networks finds those stories behind the news and brings them to light in the context of the diverse, thoughtful perspectives of American faith communities. Our mission is to enrich spiritual life and build bridges of understanding among people of different beliefs and perspectives by producing and distributing media across a variety of platforms: web, mobile, social media, TV and film.
As we wrap up 2011, the Odyssey staff has chosen the top 11 videos of the year. The stories represent the best of humanity, some of the worst of circumstances, and the inspiring ways that people use their faith and religious beliefs to navigate life together and solve pressing social issues. The subjects range from Occupy Wall Street, to the problem of poverty in the United States, to immigration debates, to the 10th anniversary of 9/11. We also captured incredible triumphs of the human spirit, such as an exclusive interview with 2011 Nobel Laureate and Lutheran Leymah Gbowee and a candid discussion with Rais Bhuiyan, whose Islamic faith led him to forgive the man who tried to kill him and fight to save him from the death penalty.
Now it is your turn: vote for the best story of 2011 out of the top 11. Visit the Top 11 Videos of 2011 page on our website and tell us what you think!
