Description from WGBH press release of the day: “Religious America, in its final episode, presents the story of an extraordinary, ordinary man - ‘Jim.’ Jim, 36, is a rubbishman who ‘really can’t see going to church,’ but considers himself religious. ‘God is love,’ he shrugs, grinning, ‘and that’s what I have plenty of. Love for life. Love, care, and believin’.’

Filmed in Hanson, Massachusetts - where Jim and his family live - and in South Boston, where Jim makes his rounds.” Participants: James Lewis; Andrea Lewis; Mr. and Mrs. Wesley Lewis.
