This week at Five years after 9/11.

W. Frederick Wooden was the minister of the Unitarian Universalist church just across the Brooklyn Bridge from the World Trade Center when terrorists attacked five years ago. Now he takes a look at American myths 9/11 shattered — myths he believes many of us still cling to. It's time, he says, for religious liberals to build something new in the rubble of our old ideas. (Update: Wooden's blog, The Ranting Rev, offers a call for lamentation today.)

The magazine also offers a selection of articles related to 9/11 from its archives, including stories from the post-9/11 special issue on terrorism.

In the news this week, Don Skinner reports on UUA President William G. Sinkford's trip to Kyoto, Japan, for the World Assembly of Religions for Peace, where Sinkford presented the first Dana Greeley Peace Prize to an interfaith women's organization from Liberia. Greeley, the first president of the UUA, was one of the founders of the World Conference of Religions for Peace. Skinner also reports about a knitting circle at a UU church in California that knits tiny hats for newborns in developing nations. And Sonja Cohen is keeping track of Unitarian Universalists in the media at's news blog.
