The Arabs (Eugene Rogan, 2009) BY: Denis Haack Bound by a common identity grounded in language and history, the Arabs are all the more fascinating for their diversity. They are one people and many peoples at the same time.
Make College Count: A Faithful Guide to Life and Learning (Derek Melleby, 2011) BY: Denis Haack This is not a book by someone who has burrowed away into a library and done research but someone who has read widely, sunk deep roots into Scripture, reflected wisely, and hung out with young adults, listening, learning, talking, and praying.
Of Pilgrims and Fire: When God Shows Up at the Movies (Roy Anker, 2010) BY: Denis Haack Within the human’s relentless curiosity, though, the most urgent question of all is the one about what will happen to one’s own self, fragile and mortal, and for what reasons and purposes it will happen. That is the deep mystery to which stories speak.
Listening to Critics: When musicians raise questions about faith (III) BY: Denis Haack There is in all of us a deep yearning for freedom, a freedom that we know is our true destiny even though we can’t quite name the slavery that has us in its grip and that has torn the freedom from us.

What The Bleep Do I Know? BY: Margie Haack “Are you from the Unitarian Church?” A small, dark-haired woman drinking a soy latte and holding a copy of Enlightenment magazine smiled encouragingly at me. Others seated around the table at Dunn Bros Coffee shop stared at me and waited.
I love my neighbor as myself but only because I don’t much care for myself.

This web site is old and creaky. The email function functions poorly when it functions at all. Worse, it all looks old. So we are starting work on building a new site, and hope to have it functioning by fall.
Our vision will not change, nor will our attempt in this little spot of the Internet to invite you to join us in thinking about the things that matter most. Thanks for visiting.
