Cairns: The Unity Church Journal of the Arts
We are adding to the scriptures of our world, making the witness more complete.
─Karen Hering, “A Heap of Nouns and Verbs,” from Cairns Vol. 1
Cairns is both a space waiting to be filled with diversity of thought and expression, and a record of our stories, struggles, joys, responses to the issues of our time, interpretations of history, and visions for the future.
You are invited to share your art and writing with the Unity congregation. We are all artists and writers; you do not need to be a professional writer or artist to submit. All writing and art is appreciated and will be reviewed for publication.
You contribute. We publish. The congregation is enriched.

Correction to Cairns Vol. 8
We humbly apologize for the mistake on page six; the last line of the compelling and heartfelt “Coon” by Joe Schur should read:
Yet, what I discovered, through my experiences at the San, was that true learning requires actual lived experience, struggle, and discomfort.
James Joyce said that mistakes are “the portals of discovery;” we learned something and will strive not to repeat the mistake. Thank you for your understanding.
