Colorful Cairn Candles

Inspired by the bold and magical work of Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone, these unusual candles take their cues from stacks of stones collected along the seawall of Vancouver, British Columbia. Since they're made from molds created from a carefully curated selection of real rocks, they're quite earthly, but their Rondinone-influenced colors give them an out-of-this-world quality. And once they start burning, their vibrant paraffin-wax drippings make them even more special. Available in two sizes (the...

How Teens Are Making Meaning Out of the Pandemic

Many people in the media and government have painted an uninspiring portrait of adolescents facing COVID-19. Young people, we are told, are either indiscriminately spreading the virus by failing to follow public health guidelines, or are at risk of stifled social and emotional growth because of restrictive social-distancing guidelines that hamper key tasks of adolescent development, such as developing a clear and coherent sense of self. Pathologizing adolescence in the West stems from deeper h...

But also looks at our current conundrum: Automobiles are not just dangerous and bad for the environment; they...

What Lent Is Really about—and How We Miss the Point

By Steven Wedgeworth O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise. For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it; you will not be pleased with a burnt offering.
