Building Liberia’s library

Nearly 24,000 books leave OKC for West Africa, where texts are nearly nonexistent.


Phil Bacharach
Thousands of books donated by Oklahoma City churches and organizations are on their way to students in Liberia.

Pious people


Gazette staff
We hope you’re sitting down for this: Oklahoma City is very, very religious — the third most religious city in the nation, in fact, according to a 2010 study by the U.S. Religion Census.

It's a blessing

Oklahoma’s Episcopal Diocese provides materials allowing for the blessing of same-sex unions.


Greg Horton

Em and the MotherSuperiors — Churches into Theaters


Joshua Boydston
As titles go, Churches into Theaters is an apt descriptor for the debut album from Oklahoma City rockers Em and the MotherSuperiors. It’s a reverential record, one that shares the gospel of classic rock, blues and soul but embraces the need to refashion it for modern times, channeling The Dead Weather, Grace Potter and Cage the Elephant along the way.
