1. Quote of the Week

“The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for whites, or women created for men.”

-Alice Walker (author of The Color Purple, in the introduction of The Dreaded Comparison by Marjorie Spiegel)

2. Rev. Frank and Mary Hoffman Sermon

The Lord Will Vindicate His People

3. September issue of The Peaceable Table

Contents include:

* One of the NewsNotes tells of a German study of magpies (relatives of crows) who show unmistakeable signs of recognizing themselves in mirrors—a capacity previously known only in a few species of mammals (including humans).

* A Glimpse of the Peaceable Kingdom features an unlikely alliance between a beagle and an apparently orphaned fawn.

* The Recipes give us tasty summer entrees made from squash, collards, and other nutritious vegetables.

* This month's Pioneers are "Melangell and other Saintly Saboteurs," three medieval saints who broke with widespread cultural values to shelter animals being pursued by hunters.

We would love to hear from you with responses to this issue and submissions for future issues.
