1. Activist Feedback

A. Robin writes:

I just wanted to let you know that I have been going to a different church every week here in Stamford, CT and giving the pastors the CVA literature and talking to them about spreading the word to their congregations. Most people have been very receptive, with a few exceptions. I feel like I am making some progress!! - have a great day!

Comment: There are so many ways to spread the word, including leaving booklets at a table-one table (Catholic churches are particularly receptive to this kind of outreach); showing the CVA’s 28 minute video Honoring God’s Creation (and using our teaching guide), and of course leafleting at Christian events.

B. Rick, who leafleted at Winter Jam in Kansas City, writes:

Weather was downright nasty in Kansas City. About 80% of the booklets went to kids. Many of the kids were huddled together under blankets which gave leafleting a bit of a twist. One adult asked me if I thought Jesus ate meat. I said yes, at least for fish. Then he asked me if I thought Jesus would eat meat today, and I said no. He asked further, did I think that Jesus would eat fish today, and I said no. I gave out 925 booklets, although my fingers were not entirely cooperative.

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

Killing Animals is Murder of the Innocent

3. Quotation

Only in objective awareness of our dependence on God can we hope to be delivered from judging and thus despising...and thus oppressing our neighbor.”

Ronald Goetz, theologian and former editor for the Christian Century

Comment: I think this relates to my recent essays on recognizing, loving, and accepting what is despicable in ourselves. If we are to accept on faith that God forgives our trespasses, then we must accept that our neighbor is also forgivable.
 – Stephen R. Kaufman
