United Church Observer

The United Church Observer is a Canadian denominational magazine, reporting on national and international issues of faith, justice, ethics, daily living and pop culture. Although it was the official publication of The United Church of Canada for 60 years, it is now a financially and editorially independent corporation. It has a paid circulation of 60,000 copies distributed by subscription and newsstand sales. This represents a decline of 80% from the 1980s, when it had a paid circulation of over 300,000, and mirrors the wider decline in attendance and membership in The United Church of Canada.

    When, in some obscure country town, the farmers come together to a special town meeting, to express their opinion on some subject which is vexing to the land, that, I think, is the true Congress, and the most respectable one that is ever assembled in the United States.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    At bottom, I mean profoundly at bottom, the FBI has nothing to do with Communism, it has nothing to do with catching criminals, it has nothing to do with the Mafia, the syndicate, it has nothing to do with trust-busting, it has nothing to do with interstate commerce, it has nothing to do with anything but serving as a church for the mediocre. A high church for the true mediocre.
    Norman Mailer (b. 1923)

    The importance of its hat to a form becomes
    More definite. The sweeping brim of the hat
    Makes of the form Most Merciful Capitan,
    If the observer says so....
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
