To make it even more awkward, his grandfather is actually still alive and will be proofreading.

The conversation begins with NYU’s Islamic Chaplain where Moss revisits the draw to change his life and become a chaplain.

    While on his imagined death bed, Zen Buddhist Chaplain Trudi Hirsh-Abramson suggests D.S. Moss would make a good chaplain. And since his most significant life decisions are made from peer pressure, dares and flattery, he is actually considering it. The problem is - and it’s a big problem - Moss is religionless. In a three part mini-series, Moss sits down with a priest, pastor, priestess, monk, imam and rabbi to explore their religious belief systems, views on the afterlife and if, in fact, he can find a religion of his own. He continues with Vedic mysticism and Afro- Caribbean Vodou.
