Houston Matters for Thurs., Nov. 14, 2013

Back in the early 1980s, about six or seven percent of Houstonians did not affiliate themselves with any religion. Today, that number has nearly doubled.

On this edition of Houston Matters, we consider what this trend means for established religious institutions in Houston, and the services they provide, now and in the future. We’ll welcome your comments and questions for Dr. Lynn Mitchell, Director of Religious Studies at the University of Houston, and Lauren Santerre, Director of Interfaith Relations at Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston.

Also: one of the prettier drives into downtown Houston is from the south, via Highway 288. One reason for that — no billboards. We’ll talk with Anne Culver, the Executive Director of Scenic Houston, about ordinances in place that address billboards, and how and why the number of billboards in Houston has, in fact, dropped significantly over the years.

And the folks behind My Table magazine have published a third edition of The Ultimate Food Lover’s Guide to Houston. We’ll talk with editor Teresa Byrne-Dodge about the guide, and about the seemingly ever-growing array of restaurants, bakeries, butchers, fishmongers, markets and pubs in Greater Houston. (Oh – and Craig reports the restaurant name he could not summon is the Lankford Grocery).
