1. Veganlogical

Ari Solomon, President and co-creator of the celebrated vegan candle line A Scent of Scandal® and a prolific activist and writer for animal and human rights, writes a compelling article about what being a vegan really means. He describes quite accurately the miserable lives of factory farmed animals and the insane addiction people have to animal-derived foods. Solomon makes a case for veganism citing the crucial benefits of a plant-based diet to the environment, animals and human health. Please search online for Who You Callin' Vegangelical?

2. Famous Quote

“The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.” ~ Schopenhauer, German philosopher

3. The Benefits of Not Eating Animals

This article refers to the health, environmental and animal welfare reasons behind not eating any type of meat (fish, chicken or beef). From heart disease to the depletion of oceans, the authors make a clear statement: it's better to leave animals off of our plates, for everyone's sake. To read the full article please search online for Are chicken and fish as unhealthy as red meat?

4. Bible Verse

(RSV) Romans 5:3-4

"We also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope."

We live in a world where suffering is inevitable. However, suffering can help us grow in our Faith, knowing that God has a perfect plan for all of Creation.

5. This Week’s Video
