Book Review: Angels & Demons by Dan Brown

Grade: A Did you know that Dan Brown’s infamous book-turned-movie, The Da Vinci Code, is actually the second book in a series – Angels & Demons being the first book? A lot of Dan Brown fans seem to disagree about which of these two Robert Langdon adventures was the best, and usually it’s whichever book they read first. I read The Da Vinci Code a … Continue reading Book Review: Angels & Demons by Dan Brown

It was pretty cool hearing people of varying ages and backgrounds, and a varying length of time within the Unitarian church, talk about their … Continue reading What I Believe

About Unitarian Universalists

So a few weeks ago Daniel and I decided to check out this church called the First Parish Unitarian church – it’s one of many Unitarian Universalist churches that have been around since like forever but because they had the name “church” attached them, I never realized they were something different.

It’s kind of baffling to me to believe anything firmly without proof. It makes me wonder, if given new information, where do you go from there? Do you ignore it, sticking to your faith? Do you consider it and perhaps change your mind? Do you allow yourself to grow? Do you grow by allowing for nothing? Is your faith protected by a fortress, a picket … Continue reading faith (n): a firm belief in something for which there is no proof
