Another year in the books! As we inch closer to January 1st, we’d like to take a moment and reflect on all that happened in 2017. From revelations of sexual abuse by people in powerful places, to intense debates over gun control, to a church founded solely to worship weed, there was never a shortage of controversial topics being discussed here on the ULC blog.
We’d like to thank you all for contributing to the fascinating conversations that took place over the past 12 months. Your voices, your observations, and your opinions are highly valued. These interactions help spur important (and at times, difficult) discussions on religion, faith, culture, and more. Difficult though they might be, it’s vital that these dialogues continue to take place. If 2017 showed us anything, it’s that our society remains intensely divided on many serious issues. This is a challenge we must meet head on; if we find ourselves unable to engage with opposing ideas, we can never hope to see eye-to eye with the people who hold them. For your part in furthering such discussions, we thank you.
On that note, here are the most-read stories of 2017! Which one surprised you the most?
