Welcome to the Norman Habel website.

The blue wren is my dreaming!

The blue wren is my dreaming!

Norman Habel is

  • A Lutheran whose ancestors are Wends from the forests of Prussia
  • A great grandfather proud of his progeny
  • A biblical scholar who reads with ecological eyes
  • A social justice advocate committed to reconciliation
  • An Earth being who resonates with the mysteries of nature
  • A song writer infatuated by the poetry of creation

Who would want a Normal Habel?
Who would want a normal Norm?
When all you do is true to you,
Why should you conform?

Who would want a Normal Habel?
You’re different through and though!
Without you we’d be normal too,
So we give thanks to you!

(Chorus sung at Habel’s 80th birthday by his progeny)
