  3. New Blog

1. Activist Feedback

This weekend I leafleted at a Promise Keepers event in Cleveland and distributed 350 “Would Jesus Eat Meat Today?” booklets. The reception rate was high, and I found that I did best when 1-3 people approached than when there was a larger group. With only a moment to talk as they passed, I would say, “About faithful and healthy eating.” Only a few people returned the booklet, and only a couple shouted, “Yes, he would” in response to the booklet’s title question. Overall, it was a very positive experience.

2. This Week’s Sermon from Rev. Frank and Mary Hoffman

Standing with the Lord Against Evil

3. New Blog

I have brought my blog to completion.  My son Calvin, after reading the blog, was inspired to write a song, which is now my final post.  He has agreed to be my editor, and my hope and plan is to turn the completed blog into a book.  I have been trying to tell a story through the blog, beginning with my earliest memories of experiences with animals, through to my present anguish over what I have come to know about their suffering at the hands of my own kind.  I want to make a difference in the world, to relieve animal suffering by nurturing human awareness and empathy, and to promote kindness and compassion in a world filled with unimaginable cruelty.  This blog/book is my first attempt to do so.  I do not expect it to be my last.
