'Deseret News Sunday Edition' looks at family caregivers, the Dead Sea Scrolls and other top stories
On this week’s "Deseret News Sunday Edition," Dave McCann discusses the coming shortage of family caregivers, scholars discuss the religious significance of the Dead Sea Scrolls and editor Jesse Hyde delivers a wrap-up of some of the week’s top stories.
Finding a balance in life is one of the great challenges, especially as people juggle careers and raise children, but similar personal and professional sacrifices can be required of those who support aging family members who can't care for themselves. In the first segment focusing on families, McCann takes a closer look at the challenges caregivers face.
According to a recent AARP report, the ratio between adults in their caregiving years to the elderly is 7 to 1. As baby boomers move into their 80s, that ratio will shrink to 3 to 1 and there won’t be enough family caregivers to go around. McCann discusses with two experts how families can plan for the future.
The second segment of the show focuses on faith and understanding the Dead Sea Scrolls. Although they are considered the greatest archeological discovery of the 20th century by many experts, most people do not understand the significant insights the texts provide about two prominent religions.
Carole Mikita traveled to Jerusalem and visited with several Dead Sea scholars about the ancient texts. She shares a report on how the Dead Sea Scrolls linked Christianity and Judaism together for the first time.
BYU professor David Seely helped translate the scrolls. He shares a unique experience he had while working on them.
The Pulse segment includes a discussion about the impact of the story Emilie Parker’s mother shared. Emilie was one of the 20 students killed during the Sandy Hook shootings. Hyde and McCann also discuss a crisis in higher education and the push to expel Santa Claus from schools.
The "Deseret News Sunday Edition" runs on KSL-TV at 9 a.m. on Sundays and highlights six areas of editorial emphasis: family, faith in the community, excellence in education, values in media and culture, causes related to helping the poor and financial responsibility.
