Jan Davis recommended David Brooks’ new book, The Road to Character. He states that he is not sure he could follow the road to character but he wanted to know what the road looked like and how other people had traveled it. (David Brooks is a columnist for the New York Times and commentator on NPR.) In this book he profiles people he considers to have a strong sense of character even though they were flawed people who experienced bumpy roads on their way to develop an admirable character. Brooks examines how society’s definition of morals and strong character has dramatically changed over generations. His book also takes a look at our current society and how technology has shaped our idea of self and character. This book is well worth the time it takes to read it! Check it out

FRIDAY, MARCH 2 is our 26th anniversary Back Door! We'd like to welcome to the stage NO STRANGERS. Several of our Columbian student friends from the music department at USM, and who are a long way from home, have asked to perform as a way to express their thanks to all the folks in the community and to UBC for seeking their fellowship and making them welcome.
