Interview with Nate Stoll
We interviewed Grand Rapids UCO staff worker Nate Stoll who spent a good part of the summer fundraising for his job; we asked him about his experience of needing to approach friends and family for his support.
Besorah, A New Book by Rabbi Mark Kinzer and Rabbi Russel Resnik
S/W alumnus Rabbi Mark Kinzer recently co-authored a book called “Besorah”. Martin Steinbereithner interviewed him and his co-author Rabbi Russell Resnik to find out why they published the book and what are some of their salient points. A very worthwhile interview to watch.
New Book by Dr. Dan Keating
Our brother Dan Keating wrote a book in collaboration with Gordon C. DeMarais. The book is entitled "Called to Christian Joy and Maturity".
Interview with Luis Arce
Luis Arce, our brother from Costa Rica, recently also graduated from Sacred Heart Seminary. We wanted to hear from him what he studied and what he wrote his thesis on. Enjoy!
