CHICAGO, IL (November 2, 2009) – Articles about a new book on sexuality written by one Covenant pastor and the honor given another pastor for his years of penning hymns were the most-read stories by visitors to the Evangelical Covenant Church website in October.

The article about Dale Kuehne’s new book – Sex and the iWorld: Rethinking Relationship Beyond an Age of Individualism – was one of the most read so far this year. The book explores how a shift to what Kuehne calls the iWorld – where the individual becomes the highest arbiter of all things right and wrong – has had disastrous consequences for society. Instead, he emphasizes that society must transform itself to become a place where relationships are paramount.

Readers also were especially interested in the honor given Bryan Jeffrey Leech, who has contributed popular hymnody to the Covenant and others. The National Association of Church Musicians presented him with Fred Bock Lifetime Achievement Award.
